Drink-driver’s 26-month ban

A DRINK-driver who was more than three times over the legal limit has been banned from driving for 26-months.

Joanne Doughty, 45, of Coach Yard Mews, Kirton Lindsey admitted driving a Volvo V40 in Brigg Road, Scunthorpe on October 16, 2011 despite being more than three times over the legal drink-drive limit.

She has been given a community order to be completed by August 9, 2012. Doughty was also ordered to pay £150 court costs.

Doughty’s driving ban will be reduced by 26 weeks if she completes a drink driving rehabilitation course.
