A man drove an HGV through Dundee whilst two and a half times the legal drink drive limit.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard Jeffery Roll, 55, struggled to manoeuvre the 48 tonne DAF articulated lorry around a narrow bend at Balgray Street and Balgray Place.
The court heard Roll scraped nearby parked cars as he attempted to turn the corner.
Witnesses stopped Roll and attempted to take his details in relation to the damage and noticed he smelled strongly of alcohol.
Fiscal depute Muhammad Sadiq told the court the incident happened at 5.45pm, on July 2.
The fiscal said: “He seemed to be struggling to pass the parked vehicles on the street and at one point his lorry struck the back of a parked vehicle.
“Witnesses approached the accused to exchange details and at this point they all found the accused to be under the influence of alcohol.”
Police were contacted and Roll was given a roadside breath test, which he failed.
Later police tests showed he had a reading of 59mics of alcohol in 100ml of breath.
Roll, of Dexterway, Middlewich, was employed by a haulage firm in Cheshire at the time of the offence.
He pleaded guilty to one charge against him.
Roll admitted driving a DAF articulated lorry after consuming so much alcohol that he gave a reading of 59mics of alcohol in 100ml of breath, exceeding the 22mics limit on July 2, at Balgray Street and Balgray Place.
Sheriff Carmichael disqualified Roll from driving for 18 months.
He also gave Roll a fine of £400.
