A 24-year-old wealthy girl from Cheshire, England, has appealed to a court not to ban her from driving because she does not want to use public transport after being caught by police for drunken driving. Kay Holcroft, an accounting assistant for a fashion chain, went out with her friend and had a few glasses of white wine. After the encounter, he took a 30-minute train journey, which he said was enough to flush out the alcohol in his system. Kay parked her car near the station and thought about returning to her luxurious Prestbury home. After a few kilometers, the police stopped him when he was seen swinging on the road. According to the Manchester Evening News report, when the socialite was tested for breath analyzer, she got 21 points more than the limit, after which her car was confiscated.
“Police noticed the accused driving the BMW 116d Sport erratically. When stopped, the police could smell alcohol on him and his eyes were glass and red,” said prosecutor Gareth Hughes. The court ordered a 15-month driving ban, to which Kay objected that the ban would have a huge impact on him. She said that she would have to take public transport to her job, which she could not do.
Kay’s request was privileged and was not granted by the court. In addition to forfeiture of his license for 15 months, he was ordered to pay a fine, fees and surcharges of £320 (about Rs 33,000).
“We take your work into account, but if you have drunk you should take a taxi. Go out and have a drink but next time book a cab. A taxi would have been much cheaper than losing your license for 15 months.” We hope you have got the message,” said the judge.
