TWO more drink drivers have been banned for three years each as Surrey Police’s anti-drink and drug driving campaign – Operation Dragonfly – continues to clean up local roads.
Stephen Fryett, of Conquest Road, Addlestone, got behind the wheel after a Christmas party in the early hours of Sunday, December 6 while heavily under the influence.
The 56-year-old was stopped by officers in Chertsey Road after narrowly avoiding a collision with a motorcycle and colliding with a curb.
He failed the roadside breath test and was held in custody at Staines Police Station where he gave a reading of 108 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – over three times the legal limit of 35mgs.
Fryett appeared at Guildford Magistrates’ Court on December 23 where he pleaded guilty to drink driving. On top of his ban, he was fined £220, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £22, a criminal courts charge of £150 and court costs of £85.
The second driver to have their licence revoked was Gary Jones, of St Peter’s Close in Woking.
He struck the central reservation on the A3 near Ripley and spun out of control in a bus stop while more than double the drink drive limit. He was reported to the police by members of the public who witnessed the collision in the afternoon of December 8.
The 55-year-old was arrested at the scene after failing a roadside breath test. He was held in custody where he gave a reading of 79mgs.
He was charged with drink driving and appeared at Guildford Magistrates’ Court last week where he pleaded guilty and was disqualified from driving for three years and fined £100. He was also ordered to pay a criminal courts charge of £150, a
victim surcharge of £20, and court costs totalling £85.
