Drink-driver misses opportunity to avoid ban
A Gayton motorist who claimed he should not be disqualified after drink-driving failed to attend the court hearing to plead his case.
Anil Capar was convicted on March 4 but hoped to avoid a ban on the grounds of the special reason of shortness of distance driven – said to have been just “two to three feet”. Sentencing at Lynn Magistrates’ Court was adjourned until today to enable the 23-year-old to present CCTV footage and witnesses.
The hearing was told that Capar, of Lynn Road, drove an Audi A3 on Albert Street in Lynn on February 17. He later blew 57 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath; the legal limit being 35.
