3 Year Drink Driving Ban for man with Rare Personality Disorder

The driver, Peter Strandring was assessed by medics as suffering from Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.

Following his guilty plea to drink driving the court were assisted by a probation report that stated: “It would appear that the reasons why he behaves in this manner is due to poor emotional control.

“He needs alcohol when his emotions are overwhelming him.”

When breathalysed Strandring gave a reading of 98mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath. The current drink driving limit in England & Wales is 35mg.

The Magistrates banned him from driving for 3 years coupled with a community order for 12 months including 25 days rehabilitative activities.
