Darren Edwards, now aged 46 will be almost 49 years old before he can legally drive any vehicle on Bermuda roads, and he’s also $1,500 lighter in his pocket.
This came about as a result of his pleading guilty to driving whilst the proportion of alcohol in his blood exceeded 80mg with this offence occurring on 4th August, during Bermuda’s annual national Cup Match celebrations. The DPP Prosecutor told the Magistrate that the Police breathalyzer test had shown 245mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood.
Mr Edwards had last been convicted of an impaired driving offence in March 2011. After being questioned by the Magistrate about a non-appearance in Court in 2011, and after the Magistrate had accepted his excuse for missing a Court date, the resident of Paget also pleaded guilty to another charge of speeding at 57kph in March 2011 and was fined $220.
He was given until 7th September to pay the $1,500 fine and was required to pay the $220 fine today.
