A DRINK driver caught over four times the limit in Lochgelly has been banned from driving.

Siobhan McKay, 26, of Kestrel Way, Perth, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

She had admitted that on March 7 this year, on the town's Paul Street, she drove after consuming alcohol. She was found to have 90 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath when the legal limit is 22.

Depute Fiscal, Dev Kapadia, said the incident occurred at 11.50pm.

"Witnesses who were in their properties heard the sound of a vehicle colliding with a curb and, coming out of their houses, saw the accused's yellow Ford Fiesta stationary on the roadway," he told the Court.

"When police came, she was slurring her speech. She provided a positive roadside breath test."

Solicitor, Alexander Flett, said his client had no intention to drive the vehicle on the night in question. "She is very remorseful about what has taken place," he said. "It was not a pre-arranged thing by any stretch of the imagination."

Sheriff Charles Macnair said it had been a high reading and fined her £400. He also banned her from driving for 14 months.
