Australian actor Ben Oxenbould has lost his job on a road safety campaign Down Under following his conviction for driving offences.

The former Hey Dad! star provided a voiceover for a Tv and radio campaign on behalf of officials at Transport for New South Wales, but he has now been dumped from the project following a brush with the law.

Oxenbould, 44, appeared at Gosford Local Court in Gosford, New South Wales last month (Mar13) to plead guilty to charges of driving while suspended for failing to pay traffic fines, and driving an unregistered car.

Tony Braxton-Smith, Deputy Director General for Customer Experience Transport for New South Wales, says, "It's safe to say Mr. Oxenbould will not be used again for voiceovers or in any other capacity for ads for road safety. At the moment we do not have police checks in place (for voiceovers). But clearly we will be reviewing that."
