A Devonshire man has been banned from the roads for 18 months for driving while impaired on New Year’s Day.

Darren Williams, 35, apologised in Magistrates’ Court, adding: “It’s something I’m ashamed of and definitely not something I want to repeat.”

The court heard police on mobile patrol at 9.40pm on January 1 noticed a motorcycle headed south in the northbound lane of Frog Lane, Devonshire, and spotted motorcycle debris in the road.

Williams admitted having an accident but denied drinking.

A breath test breath showed he had 170 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — more than double the legal limit of 80mg/100ml.

Juan Wolffe, the senior magistrate, also fined Williams $1,000.
