MAGISTRATES have ordered a disqualified driver to carry out unpaid work after he was caught over the drink drive limit.

Robert Kaczmarzyk, aged 38 and of Shakespeare Avenue, Andover, was caught close to his home on January 28 driving a Volkswagen.

A test found he had 48 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit is 35.

Officers also discovered that he did not have insurance and the car he was driving did not have an MOT. At the time, Kaczmarzyk was also banned from driving, following an earlier incident.

At Basingstoke Magistrates Court on January 21 he pleaded guilty to the offences.

Magistrates ordered him to carry out 80 hours unpaid work and banned from him driving for three years. Kaczmarzyk was also fined £120 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and £85 victim surcharge.
