Reading Magistrates' Court: ban for Padworth drug-driver
A MOTORIST has been banned for three years after being caught drug-driving.
In the dock at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, September 8, was Naresh Nanda. The 39-year-old, of Macs Close, Padworth, admitted driving a Mercedes E220 on the A4 at Padworth on March 7, when the amount of the Class A-controlled drug cocaine and also its metabolite benzoylecgonine, in his system exceeded thelimit.
As well as the driving ban, Mr Nanda was made subject to a 12-month community order and required to complete 200 hours unpaid community work. There was no order for costs or victim services surcharge because these had already been imposed for other matters, the court stated.
