Driv­ing ban for site man­ager

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

A SITE man­ager said to have given a road­side breath-al­co­hol read­ing of 170, but who later re­fused to pro­vide an ev­i­den­tial spec­i­men to po­lice, was or­dered to do 240 hours un­paid work last Thurs­day.

Alan O’Ma­honey, 44, of Rhud­d­lan Av­enue, Llan­dudno, must at­tend a think­ing skills course and an al­co­hol mis­use ac­tiv­ity un­der a com­mu­nity or­der. A 28 months driv­ing ban was im­posed and he has to pay £560 costs af­ter ad­mit­ting the fail­ure to pro­vide a sam­ple at the po­lice sta­tion.

Gwyn­daf Pari, de­fend­ing, told the town’s mag­is­trates that his client was a hard-work­ing fam­ily man who drove all over the coun­try. O’Ma­honey suf­fered from de­pres­sion and it was a par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult pe­riod for him. “He’s very re­morse­ful for his ac­tions,” the so­lic­i­tor added.

The de­fen­dant had be­gun to re­ceive coun­selling, and stopped drink­ing.

The breath-al­co­hol limit for driv­ers is 35.
