A DRINK driver crashed into a bus stop in Ballingry when more than three times over the limit.

David Drysdale, who does not even hold a full licence, told police “I’m steaming,” after demolishing a pole and crashing into a wall.

Drysdale, 24, of Woodside Way, Glenrothes, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on March 24, in Hill Road, Ballingry, he drove a car having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 69 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of alcohol, the legal limit being 22 milligrammes.

Drysdale also admitted careless driving, causing the car to mount a pavement and collide with a sign post and wall.

He further admitted driving without insurance.

Depute fiscal, Katherine Fraser, said: “At 2.55am police attended at the locus having received reports of a vehicle having been involved in a collision.

“They found a car with extensive front damage having knocked down a bus stop and struck a wall.”

The officers spoke to Drysdale who said: “I’m steaming. I fell out with the bird. It was me.”

The Court heard that Drysdale was not qualified to be driving.

Defence solicitor, James Moncrieff, said: “It was a foolish act on his part. He’d had a bad day.”

Sheriff James MacDonald banned Drysdale from driving for a year and fined him £600.
