A drunken man drove at more than 100mph as he was chased by police.
And a court heard how Leigh Edwards went through red lights and sped over two motorways after getting the sudden urge to visit his estranged father.
Edwards reached speeds of more than 100mph after snatching his girlfriend’s car keys from their Mirfield home, despite her protests that he was unfit to drive.
Kirklees magistrates told him that he faces sentencing by a crown court judge as he admitted: “I put everybody at risk.”
The Huddersfield court heard that, on July 6, Edwards and his partner had been drinking at their home in Cooperative Street, Mirfield.
Edwards, 27, became upset over family matters and decided to go and see his father in Leeds.
He had drunk a bottle-and-a-half of wine and his heavily pregnant partner tried to prevent him leaving.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said: “She hid her car keys to stop him from going but Mr Edwards found another set of keys and went anyway”
Magistrates heard that police officers on patrol received a radio message about the Toyota Yaris and spotted the vehicle being driven by Edwards on Webster Hill, Dewsbury.
They indicated to Edwards to pull over but he sped away, chased by the officers.
Mr Bozman said: “He went up Wakefield Road at speed, going through red lights and ignoring keep left signs.
“Then he went through another red light on to the M1 roundabout, speeding in excess of 100mph as he drove northbound.
“The vehicle then reached the M62 westbound and the speed reached up to 105mph.”
After Edwards’ arrest, breath tests revealed that he had 82 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
This was more than twice the legal drink-drive limit of 35 microgrammes.
In interview Edwards accepted committing offences of dangerous driving, using a vehicle without a licence or insurance, failing to stop when directed by a Pc and driving while over the prescribed limit.
Mr Bozman said: “He accepted that his driving was terrible and in his own words that: ‘I put everybody at risk’.”
Peter Hampson, mitigating, said Edwards had a difficult relationship with his family and started substituting anti-depressants for alcohol after he ran out of his medication.
Mr Hampson said: “As is often the case with alcohol, feelings come to the surface. He got this overwhelming urge to see his family and tell them he could get by on his own.”
Magistrates sent him to Leeds Crown Court, where he will be sentenced on October 1.
They also imposed an interim disqualification.
