Stroud drink driver banned for 3 years and electronically tagged

A 29-year-old Stroud man has been banned from the roads for 36 months and electronically tagged after drink driving.

Steven Pace, of Bath Road, was almost three times over the legal limit when he drove his Vauxhall along Dr Newton’s Way in Stroud on July 19, 2020.

He gave a reading of 96 micrograms of alcohol per 100 milliliters of breath: the legal limit is 35.

The judge at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on March 26 disqualified him from driving and ordered Pace, who pleaded guilty, to be electronically tagged so as enforce a month-long curfew.

Between March 26 and April 23, Pace must remain at his home address between the hours of 8pm and 6am each day.

He must also attend rehabilitation appointments as instructed by the responsible officer up to a maximum of 19 days.

If Pace completes a course approved by the Secretary of State by April 26, his driving ban will be reduced by 274 days.

The judge ordered Pace to pay a surcharge to fund victim services of £95.
