Main article content
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a woman has been sentenced for drink-driving on the A4155 in Playhatch.
Imogen Parfitt, aged 31, of Fox Heath Gardens, Cane End, Oxfordshire, was disqualified from driving for 18 months, fined £461 and told to pay a £184 surcharged at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 9 November.
Parfitt pleaded guilty to one count of driving a motor vehicle on a road or public place whilst over the prescribed alcohol limit.
At around 10pm on 18 May this year, officers stopped a Volvo C30, that Parfitt was driving, as they saw it swerving across the carriageway on the A4155 Henley Road.
Parfitt failed a roadside breath test so the officers arrested her. She then provided a sample of 85ug per 100ml of breath at the police station, more than double the legal limit of 35ug per 100ml of breath.
Parfitt was charged the following day.
Investigating officer PC Louise Savory said: “Imogen Parfitt produced an evidential breath sample over twice the legal limit.
“Drink-driving is never acceptable and will always be dealt with robustly.
“It puts not only the driver but all other road users at risk of significant harm as a result.”
