Drink-driver is stopped twice in just four days

Have your say

A MAN has been handed two driving bans after he was caught drink-driving twice in four days.

Kyle Lewis, 28, of Oak Road, Fareham, appeared at Fareham Magistrates’ Court where he admitted two charges.

He was first stopped in Trinity Street in Fareham while driving a silver BMW 330.

A test revealed he had 65 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – more than double the 35mg limit.

Magistrates banned him from driving for 12 months and fined him £300 for the May 28 offence.

But just four days later he was stopped on May 31 while driving the same car in The Avenue, Fareham.

A test showed that time he had 52 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, above the limit.

For this he was fined £300, and told to pay a victim surcharge of £30, costs of £85 and a criminal courts charge of £150.

Magistrates banned him for three years for this offence.

His disqualification will be reduced by 39 weeks if he completes a driver awareness course by July 2017.

Lewis pleaded guilty to both charges when he appeared in court.
