Cumbrian drink driver missed last bus home

A MAN found guilty of driving while more than two times the drink-drive limit was travelling home from a party after missing his last bus.

Daniel Florin Sontea, 36, of Union Terrace, Penrith, was found at the scene of a car crash at the Rheged Centre, on the outskirts of the town at 1.20am on May 20.

Carlisle Magistrates’ Court was told

Sontea, a chef, was breath tested by police and found to have 73mcg of alcohol in his breath. The legal limit is 35mcg.

He admitted to police that he had drunk four pints of beer and two glasses of wine.

The court was told that Sontea did not realise he was over the limit, he was sorry for his actions and he was happy that nothing more serious had happened.

Sontea was banned from driving for 19 months, fined £160 with £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
