Here are the latest motorists to be banned from the roads after being caught drink-driving:
Drunken Daniel Boal crashed his Mercedes van into a parked car when nearly three-and-a-half times the legal limit.
The 31-year-old crashed into the vehicle in Beverley Drive, Bentilee, just after 1am on October 6.
The police were called and the defendant provided a positive roadside breath test. He was taken into custody where he was breathalysed and gave a reading of 120 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath ‚Äď nearly three-and-a-half times the legal limit of 35.
Boal, of Dividy Road, Bentilee, pleaded guilty to drink-driving when he appeared at North Staffordshire Justice Centre.
The court heard the defendant is deeply remorseful.
Representing himself, Boal told the court: ‚ÄúI hold my hands up, I made a stupid mistake. I am sorry.‚ÄĚ
Magistrates handed Boal an 18 month community order with a rehabilitation activity requirement for 12 days, 240 hours unpaid work and he must complete a drink impaired drivers‚Äô programme.
He was disqualified from driving for 29 months but his ban will be reduced by 31 weeks if he completes a drink-drive
