Bournemouth Echo: Bournemouth man was ‘more than four times’ over legal drink drive limit Bournemouth man was ‘more than four times’ over legal drink drive limit

A BOURNEMOUTH man admitted drink driving with more than four times the legal alcohol limit in his breath.

Daniel Huffman, 31, was arrested in a BMW by police acting on a tip-off as he arrived home in Charminster Close on March 14, and when breathalysed he gave a reading of 147 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Mitigating at Bournemouth Magistrates Court yesterday, Jamie Porter said Huffman had enrolled on a therapy course.

Magistrates said they were awaiting a sentencing recommendation.

BMW owners are very poor drivers, let alone one that is four times over the limit. He must have known he was unfit to drive
Silly boy deserves a heavy fine plus a lengthy ban.

Huh the best therapy for him is a very very long ban, no licence until an advanced driver course is passed, forfeit his car and a very hefty fine.

It did cross my mind what type of therapy course an idiot would enrol on.That sort of complete disregard for other road users safety can only be rewarded as some one else suggested a life ban

Luckily nobody was killed on his drive home. If this was a tip off I wonder how many times he had done this before? - I fear for the next generation.

What's the therapy course, lifting two glasses at once one in each hand, what this man on, apart from booze

Agree with ban and forfeiture of car

Also suggest a bit of unpaid portering in Southampton trauma unit, to maybe see what he could have caused. One weekend night for a few months might 'sober him up' and let him put something useful back into society.

Travelling on public transport might help him appreciate what a 'privilige' having a car is - because the roads only work because 99.99% of folk don't behave as he does.

Glad he was 31 and not 71 as the number of negative comments would have soared. I'll take my chances with slow elderly Micra drivers any day compared to middle aged tanked up BMW driviers.
