A repeat drink-drive offender has been banned from the road for three years.
Rory Moir, 28, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court where he admitted driving with 62mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath on August 13. The legal limit is 22mg.
Depute fiscal Carrie Stevens said police spotted Moir’s car left insecure on the city’s Regent Quay at 2.40am and traced him on Union Street, where he was breathalysed.
She added: “When asked who was driving he accepted he had been driving that vehicle.”
Solicitor Kevin Longino said: “His involvement in this matter can best be described as utter foolishness. His judgment was affected by the alcohol he consumed.”
Sheriff Margaret Hodge told Moir, whose address was given as Kepplehills Road, Aberdeen: “I notice in 2010 for the same offence you were disqualified for two years.”
She banned Moir for three years and fined him £700.
