6am car accident painter gets 16-month ban

A Lancashire court has banned a painter and decorator from driving after he was found to be twice over the legal limit for alcohol in the bloodstream when he was in a 6am car crash.

The driver's lawyer stated that the accident had been shown to have been caused by mechanical failure in his car, but the driver still pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol. He admitted drinking the night before, but had believed that his alcohol levels would have been back within the legal levels when he began driving.

While no personal injury is recorded in the crash, the punishment - a £150 fine, plus costs and the victims' surcharge, and a 16-month driving ban - means that the driver is likely to lose his newly-started painting and decorating business as a result of the drink-driving car accident.
