Drink driver put off the road

Bray People - - NEWS -

A MAN who drove over the le­gal limit was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three years and fined €800 at Wick­low Dis­trict Court.

Si­mon Fin­ney (28), Greenogue, Kim­ber­ley Road, Grey­stones, had the ban post­poned to Novem­ber 1.

Fin­ney was driv­ing at Cor­nagower East, Brit­tas Bay, Wick­low, on De­cem­ber 20, 2015, when he was found to have 50 mil­ligrammes of al­co­hol per 100 millil­itres of blood.

The court heard on Tues­day, July 18, that Fin­ney had been out with a re­cently-di­vorced friend and they had too much to drink.

‘Was he cel­e­brat­ing or drown­ing his sor­rows?’ asked Judge Alan Mitchell. The judge asked him to make an un­der­tak­ing that he would not drive over the limit dur­ing the pe­riod of post­pone­ment.
