A MAN who was more than three times the legal drink-drive limit collided with two other cars in a Lowestoft street, a court has heard.
David Campbell, 37, who is suffering from a terminal illness, was arrested following the crash, in Oxford Road, on March 31.
Tess James, prosecuting, told Lowestoft Magistrates' Court on Tuesday that Campbell gave a breathalyser reading of 109mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg.
Campbell, of Mander Way, Cambridge, pleaded guilty to the offence and was banned from driving for three years, due to having a previous drink-driving conviction within the past 10 years. He was also fined �235 and ordered to pay total costs of �45.
Lucy Brakewell, for Campbell, said he was planning to move to Lowestoft to be near his mother. On the night of the offence, he had been visiting his sister and brother-in-law, but decided to go to his mother's house a few streets away after the couple had an argument.
Campbell's Triumph Herald and the other cars were left with scratches.
