Magistrate bans driver from roads for 18 months

Magistrates' Court

A man who refused to take a breath test after being stopped by police has been disqualified from driving all vehicles for 18 months.

Daren Edwards, 56, from Sandys, pleaded guilty to driving while impaired by alcohol, when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court today.

The court heard that officers were doing sobriety checks on Crow Lane in October 2020 and stopped Edwards, who was driving a car.

Edwards denied drinking alcohol before driving, but refused to take a breath test both at the scene and at the Hamilton Police Station.

In addition to the ban, Edwards was fined $1,500.
