Haverfordwest woman banned from driving after crash in Castle Lake car park

A mother of three has been ordered off the roads after failing to provide adequate breath tests following a road crash. 

Police were called to Castle Lake car park, Haverfordwest, on the night of March 25 following reports that a vehicle, namely a Vauxhall Astra, had driven into a wall.

They followed the car and observed it pull up outside the homes address of Tracey Kerrison, 42, at Scotchwell View, Prendergast. 

Officers identified the driver as Kerrison and spoke to her about her manner of driving. They subsequently carried out a roadside breath test which proved positive, giving a reading of 123 mcg; the legal limit is 35. 

Kerrison was taken to Haverfordwest police station to provide further breath tests but, despite five repeated attempts, was unable to, and was unable to give any medical reasons for her inability to do so. 

This week she pleaded guilty before Haverfordwest magistrates for failing to provide a specimen for analysis. 

She was represented in court by Mr Tom Lloyd. 

“She’s very embarrassed to be here today,” he told the magistrates.  

 “This wasn’t a willful refusal. She tried on a number of times to provide that sample and did everything she could. But she failed.” 

Tracey Kerrison was fined £200 and ordered to pay £85 costs and an £80 surcharge. She was disqualified from driving for 16 months.
