54-year-old Mandy Owen has been disqualified from driving for a period of 26 months after pleading guilty to driving whilst almost 3 times the limit.
Owen, of Mill Street in Newport, crashed her Suzuki SX4 into a wall in Ryde on 20th November. She failed to negotiate a right-hand bend at the junction of Alexandra Road and St John’s Hill, crashing into the garden wall of a residential property.
On the evidential breathalyzer, Mandy blew 101 – 2.8x the legal limit of 35.
Appearing at the Isle of Wight Magistrates Court on Friday (18th December), Owen was disqualified from driving for 26 months and ordered to complete 90 hours of unpaid work. She was also ordered to pay £85 costs with a £95 surcharge.
PC Green of the Joint Operations Unit said at the time of the incident:
“It will never cease to amaze me that people are willing to take the risk and drink and drive. These people not only risk their own safety but all other people who are going about their daily business.
“We will continue to actively target and prosecute offenders”.
