Woman two times over the limit
A 26-year-old woman was banned from the roads for 18 months for drink-driving yesterday after police spotted her shrubbery-covered car in the early hours of the morning.
Magistrates’ Court heard officers spotted Jennifer Ross’s “extensively damaged” vehicle on Paget’s South Road about 3.30am last Friday and pulled her over.
She told police she had been involved in a collision earlier and admitted she had been drinking.
A later breath test showed 170 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — more than double the 80mg/100ml legal limit.
Ross, who pleaded guilty to drink-driving, asked if she could be allowed to continue to ride a motorcycle so she commute to work. Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe said a disqualification was mandatory and also fined Ross $1,000.
