Drink Driver Madeley banned for 20mths
She didn't have her car crushed so who's to know whether she will be out there driving despite the ban? Where is the car? In a pound? Probably not.
Perhaps the judge thought 'that would be a bit cruel'. But car thieves have their cars crushed but not reckless drivers like this one? It is more important that property isn't stolen then than people's safety.
At 20 months, she had a longer ban that footballer David Bentley who had been banned numerous times but only received a 12 month ban. It all makes sense doesn't it?
I suppose it depends on the judge at the time? These bans don't seem to be consistent at all.
Chloe Madeley has been disqualified from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to drink-driving.
The 22-year-old daughter of TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan was arrested after a crash in Barnet, north London, in the early hours of August 16 after her car clipped another vehicle and overturned.
Hendon Magistrates' Court heard that she had drunk two cocktails earlier in the evening and was almost twice the legal limit when the crash happened.
When will judge s also realise that 'having no car' is not necessarily a 'punishment'. A punishment is more like 'a'prison sentence' to me.
As a car-free person for many years now, I am enjoying 'the punishment'. I can walk, cycle or use public transport. It is no major loss to me. And it is green.
