Nine more drivers banned through Sussex Police campaign
3:12pm Monday 3rd February 2014 in News
Nine more people have been banned from the roads after being caught drink-driving as part of Sussex Police's December crackdown.
It brings the total of motorists convicted of driving offences as part of the name and shame campaign to more than 50.
Among the latest wave to have their car keys taken away from them include Carlo Boersma, 36 of Rutland Road in Hove, who pleaded guilty to drink-driving and was banned from the road for 26 months, fined £1,800 and was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £120 victim surcharge.
Melanie Pontet-Piccolomini, 37 of Mantell Drive in Cuckfield, pleaded guilty to drink-driving and was banned from the roads for 12 months, fined £110 and ordered to pay £40 costs and a £20 victim surcharge while Henry Fowler, 44 of Spences Lane in Lewes, pleaded guilty to drink-driving and was banned from the roads for 46 months, given a 12-months community order and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.
Chief Inspector Natalie Moloney said: "We have seen from the campaign that there is not one type of person who drinks and then drives. The people convicted have been of all ages and backgrounds.
“The only things that link them are the fact that they were selfish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking and that we caught them.”
