A KELTY man's car left the road when he got behind the wheel after taking cannabis.

Robbie Riach, 22, of Crambeth Place, ended up stuck on a verge and has now appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on October 19 last year on the B9157 Kirkcaldy to Aberdour road, at the junction with the A909, he was driving a car having consumed drugs.

He failed a drugs test and was found to be over the limit for cannabis.

The proportion of Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in his blood was 2.3 microgrammes per litre of blood, the legal limit being 2 microgrammes.

Depute fiscal Lauren Pennycook said that at 11.35pm police had been contacted about a road traffic incident.

They found a black Corsa stuck on a verge having left the road.

Officers could smell cannabis from the vehicle. Riach was arrested and blood samples were taken at the police station.

Riach, who was representing himself in court, said he had taken cannabis earlier but did not think it would affect his driving.

Sheriff William Gilchrist banned Riach from driving for a year and fined him £320.
