A NEWBURY woman who refused to take a breath test has been banned from driving.
In the dock at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, July 24, was 54-year-old Tanya Teresa David, of Sayers Close.
She initially denied being the driver of a vehicle in Hectors Way, Newbury, who failed without reasonable excuse to provide a breath specimen for analysis on February 18.
However, she subsequently changed her plea and admitted the offence.
Ms David was made subject to a 12-month community order with 150 hours unpaid community work requirement and rehabilitation activity requirement.
In addition, she was ordered to pay £325 costs, plus a statutory victim services surcharge of £85.
Finally, Ms David was banned from driving for 36 months.
