Driver gets 18-month road ban
A 47-year-old man caught riding a motorbike while more than double the drink-driving limit was banned yesterday for 18 months.
Calvin Trott, from Smith’s, was also fined $1,200 at Magistrates’ Court.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo heard that Trott was stopped by police as he rode along South Road, Devonshire, at about 10.30pm on December 23 last year.
Trott admitted to officers that he had drank Guinness and vodka that evening.
A breath test showed that he had 189 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — more than twice the limit of 80mg per 100ml.
