An Aberdeen man also avoided a ban for careless driving.
William Ross previously pleaded guilty to the offence.
The 60-year-old entered a road at excessive speed and crashed into another car, injuring an 81-year-old woman.
Fiscal depute Kelly Mitchell said the incident happened at 1.15pm as the accused’s black Kia was leaving a car park on Summerhill Road.
She said as a grey Citroen approached the entrance to the car park Ross “sped out” towards it.
The driver “attempted to swerve” to avoid a crash but Ross’ car collided with the Citroen.
Defence agent Liam McAlister said his client had experienced “probably the most difficult year of his life” suffering a stroke as well as mobility problems.
He said he is reliant on his driving licence to get around, adding he is normally a careful driver.
Sheriff Graham Buchanan fined Ross, whose address was given as Manor Avenue, Aberdeen, £235 and gave him five penalty points.
