Baildon man slapped with ban after drink driving twice in 15 days

David Young, of Baildon, committed the offence twice in the month of November 2022.

The 36-year-old was convicted of drink driving, failing to stop for police and failing to provide a test.

On the first occasion, he had been asked by local PCSOs to move his car as it was parked illegally on double yellow lines and causing an obstruction.

PCSOs were acting on complaints as the location is raised regularly by the community.

The 36-year-old made off and failed to stop for police in Baildon on November 5.

He was arrested from his home address a short time later.

Appearing in court on December 7, Young received a community order, a driving ban of 39 months and a £114 fine.

He was again arrested on November 20 for driving while unfit through drink and failing to provide a test in custody.

Young’s 12 weeks sentence was suspended by 24 months when his case was heard in court on January 27.

On this occasion, he was disqualified from driving for 87 months, had to complete 150 hours of unpaid work and a £154 fine.
