Drunk driver Neil Templeman banned from roads for two years

Friday 19th August 2016

Drunk driver Neil Templeman has been banned from the roads for a string of motoring offences.

The Maidstone resident, 32, was sentenced on 8 August 2016 at Mid Kent Magistrates’ Court.

He pleaded guilty to driving without insurance, driving without a test certificate and drink driving.

On 23 July 2016 the 32-year-old, of St Catherine’s Gardens, Maidstone, drove a Vauxhall Corsa in Sutton Road, Maidstone, without a test certificate and with no insurance. He gave a breath test of 104 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Magistrates banned Templeman from driving for 24 months and ordered him to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work in the next 12 months. He must also pay £85 costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

Disqualification can be reduced by 181 days if, by 7 December 2017, he satisfactorily completes a course approved by the Secretary of State, the cost of which will not exceed £250.
