A Dublin woman who was caught drink-driving in Armagh despite only holding a provisional licence has been fined £350 and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
The court heard that on Friday, October 27, police were alerted by a member of the public to a road traffic collision on the Friary Road in Armagh.
Upon speaking to the parties involved, police ascertained the driver of a Ford Fiesta had collided with the back of a Nissan Qashqai.
Whilst speaking to the defendant, the driver of the Fiesta, police could smell intoxicating liquor coming from her breath and her speech was slurred.
A breath test was requested which resulted in a fail. The defendant was then arrested and cautioned. It was discovered that she only had a provisional licence, was not displaying L plates and was not insured.
Whilst in custody she failed to provide an evidential sample of breath.
District Judge Anne Marshall imposed a total fine of £350, alongside the £15 offender levy, for the charges of driving whilst unfit, driving without insurance, driving without L plates and failing to provide a specimen of breath.
She was also banned from driving for a period of 12 months.
