A MOTORIST has been banned from the road for three years after she was found to be nearly four times over the drink drive limit.
Amrit Kaur Singh, 31, of Janice Drive, Fulwood, was stopped by police when behind the wheel of a car in Garstang Road, Preston.
She was found to have 128 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of her breath.
The legal alcohol limit for drivers in the UK is 35 microgrammes.
Singh admitted committing the offence on August 29 this year in a hearing at Preston Magistrates’ Court.
Magistrates disqualified her from holding or obtaining a driving licence for 36 months, which they said could be reduced by nine months if she agrees to undertake a driving course at a cost of £250.
They said a driving ban was obligatory when somebody had been caught driving after consuming that much alcohol.
Singh was handed a 12-month supervised community order, ordered to attend probation appointments and to participate in a 14-day Drink Impaired Drivers Programme.
Magistrates also told her she must pay a victim surcharge of £60 and court costs of £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service.
