A woman has been given a driving ban after being caught more than twice the legal alcohol limit - while riding a 2.4mph mobility scooter.
Amanda Leaff, 46, said she had taken the buggy from an Asda supermarket to save herself the taxi fare for her trip home.
A court was told yesterday how it would have taken Leaff, of Stretford, Manchester, more than four hours to complete the ten-mile journey, had she not been spotted 'driving erratically' by an off-duty police officer.

I, for one, definitely feel safer knowing that this scofflaw has been reprimanded.
I heard of someone else who was driving a forklife in a building who was cited, at least according to the press, for drunk driving.
And another kid who was fifteen and in a fist fight with another fifteen year old and was arrested.
Here they usually catch them on lawn tractors...
This gal sounds like quite a “rascal”
can one be cited for drunk driving for riding an unlicensed non traditional vehicle? Is everything against the law. Do we have to be perfect in public?
I wonder if drunken sledding would get one arrested..
Too bad she did not simply commit murder. She’d receive a lesser punishment in Britain.
Driving a forklife while drunk is hughly serious!
I would think stealing the scooter from the gocery store would be an even more serious crime.
