A DRINK-driver caught out on the A49 in Hereford has been banned from the roads by magistrates.

Shvan Jabar entered a guilty plea to one count of driving while over the alcohol limit when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in May.

The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 29-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor George Cousins, had been caught out on the A49 Victoria Street in Hereford after getting behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Corsa on April 10.


An evidential breath test revealed that he had 41 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Jabar, of Eign Gate, Hereford, was disqualified from driving for 12 months and fined £200 for the offence, with magistrates saying that they had taken his guilty plea into account when imposing the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £135.
