A man has lost his licence after being caught drink driving in Windsor.

Krishanthan Rajeswaran, 24, of Lyons Park Avenue, Wembley pleaded guilty at Slough Magistrates’ Court on Monday last week to one count of driving a vehicle when above the legal limit for alcohol.

He was stopped on January 18 after officers noticed a headlight was out on his car.

On providing a roadside breath test, he was found to be over the legal limit and was subsequently arrested. When tested again at the police station, Rajeswaran was found to be over twice the drink drive limit.

Rajeswaran was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for one year and five months, fined £450 and ordered to pay £85 in costs to the CPS and a further £45 to the victim services fund.

Investigating officer, PC Rasa Martisiute, based at Maidenhead police station, said: “Rajeswaran’s actions were reckless and it is lucky that he was not involved in a road traffic collision.

“Drink driving can have devastating consequences and we work tirelessly to bring to justice those who think it is acceptable to consume alcohol and get behind the wheel, putting the lives of other road users in danger.

“Our message is simple – it is not worth the risk.”
