Grangemouth man banned after driving when more than three times over drink-drive limit
A Grangemouth man has been banned from the roads after he got behind the wheel while more than three times over the legal drink-drive limit.
Ian Forbes, 47, 3 Brooke Street, admitted driving in Brooke Street and Dock Road in Grangemouth, and on roads in between, on August 20 after consuming so much alcohol the proportion in his breath was 71 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeding the 22mcg limit.
Sheriff Christopher Shead disqualified Forbes for three years and placed him under a four-month restriction of liberty order which bans him from leaving his home between 7pm and 7am daily.
The order was imposed as an alternative to custody.
