A SOUTHAMPTON man has been banned for drink-driving in a car he had taken without consent.

Michal Fidler, 25, of Trafalgar Road, Freemantle, was stopped in an X-reg Kia by police on the M3 on November 26, Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court heard.

His alcohol reading was 77mg per 100ml of breath, more than double the legal limit.

Fidler also pleaded guilty to breaking a provisional licence by driving unsupervised, driving with no insurance and taking the car without consent.

Magistrates ordered him to pay the owner £150 compensation.

Magistrates fined him £230, disqualified him from driving for 20 months and ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £23 and costs of £85.

Cheaper than paying tax, insurance and MOT. He'll be back behind the wheel in a £50 scrap heap (or stolen car) soon. He doesn't give a sh!te. Lock the idiot up for 5 years minimum! Stupid legal system.

hulla baloo, Victim surcharges were revised to relate to the type of offence and the subsequent fines and/or sentences applied, from 1st October 2012 when the new surcharges became applicable, and now range from either none, or, ascending the list from £15 minimum, to a maximum of £120. The maximum applied (£120) is almost wholely charged to companies and any commercial organisation.

Hulla baloo, how can you call the victim surcharge a tax when it is only applied to those convicted of crime and the money is then GIVEN to victims of crime?
If you don't want to pay don't commit any crimes.
