A cabbie from Portslade has been banned from the road after being convicted of drink-driving.
Peter Sourial, 34, of Trafalgar Road, Portslade was caught by Sussex Police during a sting operation over the Christmas period.
According to Brighton And Hove News the operation is part of a yearly campaign, in an effort to reduce the number of drink-drivers on the road.
Sourial was stopped, and subsequently arrested, whilst driving his Vauxhall Zafira, in Lincoln Road, Portslade on December 19.
He was found to be more than double the legal limit, with 71 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
Sourial faced Brighton Magistrates’ Court on January, where he was sentenced to a 17 month driving ban and ordered to pay a £120 fine, £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
