A man with an appalling driving record was given a reprieve from jail after magistrate David Day admitted sending him to jail seemed to have no impact.
"He's been to jail, he's had everything else but he continues to drive," he said.
Trent Robert Wright, 30, of Orchard Grove Road, was caught again twice, just five days apart in December.
Wright was banned from driving from June 27, 2013 to July 4, 2036, when he was caught for his 10th and 11th offences.

On December 14 Wright was caught riding an unregistered and uninsured motorbike without a helmet on Orchard Grove Road at 5.50pm.
On December 19 he was caught driving a Toyota sedan on Churchill Avenue when he had to give way to police at the Glenroi Avenue intersection.
Wright initially tried to avoid police by doing a u-turn and parking in a backyard.
Mr Day said Wright, who appeared in Orange Local Court on Monday, had been given all the sentences available in the criminal justice system for the offence, except an intensive correction order, which is a custodial sentence carried out in the community.
"He's not going to jail, the only reason he's not going to jail is that he hasn't had an ICO yet," Mr Day said.
"If he already had an ICO he would be sitting in the dock.

"The sad thing is I cannot give an ICO for as long as I would like to because I'm limited by the maximum jail sentence of 12 months."
Mr Day gave Wright a 12-month ICO for each of the two driving while disqualified charges, with conditions that he participate in rehabilitation.
He was also told not to occupy the driver's seat of any motor vehicle and was subject to electronic monitoring with an ankle bracelet.
"Ordinarily Mr Wright I would sentence you to jail, your traffic record is appalling, you thoroughly deserve a custodial sentence," he said.
Mr Day also disqualified Wright's driver's licence for an additional 12 months for each charge.
For riding the motorbike without a helmet, riding an unregistered vehicle and riding an uninsured vehicle, he was convicted without further charge.
"You must think your head is very strong, or it's not worth protecting," Mr Day said about the missing helmet.
Solicitor Clive Hill said Wright had a period of no offending because his partner got her driver's licence.
However, Mr Hill said he reoffended when he stopped taking medication but he was now back on the medication.
