A 48-year-old motorist from Royston who drove a Range Rover while more than twice the alcohol limit has been banned from the road and handed a bill for almost £1,500.
Anthony Bekesi, of Ivy Lane, drove the Range Rover Sport in his home street on Tuesday, March 21 – and admitted drunk driving when he appeared before Stevenage magistrates on Monday.
Chairman of the bench Eleanor Cooke banned Bekesi from holding a driving licence for 20 months, which is obligatory for the offence, and also ordered him to pay a £1,269 fine, £85 in costs and a £126 victim surcharge – a total of £1,480.
The 20-month driving ban will be reduced by 20 weeks if Bekesi completes a drink-drive rehabilitation course by May 10 next year.
Bekesi was found to have 77 microgrammes of alcohol in millilitres of breath.
