Drunk Driver Crashed Into Sign Before Rolling Car

A motorist has been disqualified for four years after crashing his car on the A428 while more than two times over the drink drive limit.

Police were called to the A428 near Cambourne after 47-year-old David Foster crashed his Ford Focus at about 12.45am on 7 July.

When they arrived they saw a damaged road sign and, 200 metres down the road, the car on its side.

Foster, who was the only person in the car at the time it crashed, was pulled from the vehicle and checked over by officers who became suspicious when they smelt alcohol.

He was breathalysed at the roadside and blew 116ugs, more than three times the legal limit (35ugs), before telling officers he “had only had a couple of red wines.”

He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital as a precaution, where his blood was also tested and found to contain 213ugs per 100ml of blood. The legal limit is 80ugs.

As well has being handed the ban Foster, of Springfield Road, Slough, Berkshire, was also ordered to pay £635 in fines after pleading guilty to drink driving at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court.
