A man has been disqualified from driving after pleading guilty to various offences, including drink-driving.
On June 25, at around 2.35am, Tomas Samoska, 32, of Lyndhurst Crescent, Swindon, was spotted by the Force’s Roads Policing officers on Whitworth Road driving the wrong side of the mini roundabout with Pinehurst Road.
He was subsequently pulled over, where he blew around double the drink-drive limit.
Samoska was also found to be driving on an expired provisional licence and without insurance.
He was arrested and taken to custody.
Samoska pleaded guilty to the offences and was banned from driving for 36 months. He was also fined £711, and required to pay a surcharge of £277 and court costs of £85.
Drink driving is one of the fatal five offences, all of which increase the risk of you being involved in a serious or fatal collision.
Wiltshire Police has launched a Road Safety Campaign after the Force’s Serious Collision Investigation Team was called out to 19 of the most serious road traffic collisions so far this year, compared to 20 for the entirety of 2022.
The campaign will focus on enforcement and raising awareness of the fatal five offences: speeding, drink and drug driving, using a phone while driving, not wearing a seatbelt, and careless or dangerous driving.
If you suspect somebody of drink driving, please call 101 or 999 in an emergency and give as much information as possible including a description of the driver, vehicle and direction of travel.
