Drink driver’s car seized

The Oban Times - - News -

A CHURCH- GOER has had her car seized af­ter she drove while more than four times over the drink drive limit.

Leeanne Lowe, of Young Place in Fort Wil­liam, ad­mit­ted at the town’s sher­iff court last Wed­nes­day (Septem­ber 2) driv­ing with 100 mi­cro­grammes of al­co­hol in 100 millil­itres of breath, when the limit is 22mcg, at Belford road on the morn­ing of Sun­day March 29. Fis­cal Michelle Mol­ley said the 40-year- old drove to Fort Wil­liam Bap­tist Church at 10.30am where some­one re­ported her to the po­lice as her ‘speech was slurred, she was un­steady on her feet and smelling of al­co­hol’.

Sher­iff Brian Cameron de­ferred sen­tence un­til Septem­ber 15 for back­ground re­ports and im­posed an im­me­di­ate driv­ing ban.

Sher­iff Cameron also ac­cepted Ms Mol­ley’s re­quest to have the car seized to pre­vent a risk to ‘public safety’. He added: ‘Not only am I tak­ing the car away, I’m tak­ing temp­ta­tion away.’
