A1198 Drink Driver Banned For Three Years

    A drink driver who blew more than four times the legal limit has been banned for three years.

    Paul Bower, 59, was seen driving his Chevrolet Kalos erratically along the A1198 towards Papworth, at about 4pm Saturday, 26 October.

    On one occasion Bower crossed into the opposite lane and clipped wing mirrors with another vehicle.

    He was pulled over by officers after a member of the public had followed him and reported concerns to police.

    He was arrested after failing a roadside breath test and in custody blew 149 ugs, more than four times the legal limit (35 ugs).

    Bower, of London Road, Peterborough, was given an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday (25 November) after pleading guilty to drink driving.

    He was also disqualified from driving for three years, handed a 12-month community order and told to complete 200 hours of unpaid work.
