A teenage girl has been banned from driving after she was seen driving the wrong way down a one way street before "staggering" from her car.

Gemma Chow, Garrick Road, Worthing, was charged with drink-driving and banned from driving for three years as she appeared at Crawley Magistrates Court today. 

The 19-year-old was arrested after she was spotted driving the wrong way into Bath Place, Worthing, parking her car and then "staggering" from it in the early hours of the Saturday morning. 

She pleaded guilty and was banned from the roads for three years. She was also fined £250 and ordered to pay £25 costs and £85 costs.

Chow is one of 91 people who have been charged this month as part of Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police's crackdown on drink and drug-driving.

You can text officers on 65999 with the details of people you suspect of drink or drug driving or visit www.operationcrackdown.co.uk to report them and give their details and information about their vehicle.

If you know someone is driving while over the limit or on drugs call 999.

A self inflicted problem, but I imagine the first vehicle insurance quote this young lady gets in 3 years time will make her blink..

20 years of sound whipping? You pay good money for just half of that in some parts.

I believe non-custodial sentences are often worn like a badge of honour in many parts of the UK.
Generally speaking, custodial sentences (on the other hand) are a chance to catch up with old mates and network.
