A PETERHEAD woman drove down the wrong side of an Aberdeen dual carriageway when she was more than three times the drink-drive limit.
Dangerous driver LYNDA WILLIAMS was fined more than £1,020 and put off the road for 18 months after police spotted her heading into the face of oncoming traffic.
The 39-year-old admitted charges of dangerous and drink driving, which happened on Inverurie Road, Bucksburn.
Other drivers were seen to take evasive action not to collide with Williams’ car on January 23.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard that police smelled alcohol on her breath when she was pulled over.
Defence agent Stuart Flowerdew said Williams, whose address was listed in court papers as 112 Queen Street, Peterhead, had decided to drive after having a row with her boyfriend.
He said: “She has had a clean driving licence for 14 years.”
But Sheriff Malcolm Garden said she could have caused a serious accident and imposed a £1,020 fine as well as a driving ban.
He said: “You were three times over the prescribed limit and drove in a manner that could have caused a serious accident.”
ANDREI GONTSAROW was caught by police after they pulled over his car and smelled alcohol on his breath.
Defence agent Sheena Mair said the 28-year-old thought he would be fit to drive because he had eaten something when he had a drink.
Gontsarow, whose address was listed in court papers as 20B Ferrier Crescent, Aberdeen, admitted being over the drink-drive limit when he was caught on Aberdeen’s Market Street on September 12 last year.
He was fined £480 and banned from driving for a year.
PAUL BRUCE was more than double the legal limit when he drove on the city’s Virginia Street on May 6.
The 23-year-old, whose address was listed in court papers as 8 Gairn Circle, Aberdeen, was banned from driving for 15 months and ordered to pay a £500 fine after he admitted the offence at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
