A HUDDERSFIELD motorist caught drink-driving while banned could be on the road to jail.
Police carried out a computer check on a Nissan Prairie being driven north on the M1 in north Derbyshire and found it was not covered by insurance.
It was stopped and driver Simba Mugadza told officers he had just bought it, Chesterfield magistrates heard.
Becky Mahon, prosecuting, said further inquiries revealed that Mugadza, 30, was disqualified from driving until April of next year.
"He was about to be released when an officer smelled alcohol on his breath and he was asked to provide a sample."
Mugadza, of Bishops Court, Berry Brow, went on to supply a reading of 54mcgs of alcohol in 100mls of breath, the limit being 35mcgs.
"This reading was given two and a half hours after he had initially been stopped ," added Miss Mahon.
Mugadza admitted drink-driving and driving while disqualified and without insurance on May 14.
He had two previous convictions for drink-driving, the latest being in 2004 when he received a three-year road ban.
Presiding magistrate Grant Stothart adjourned sentence for probation reports and warned Mugadza that he could be locked up at the next hearing on July 3.
