A HILLFOOTS drink-driver kept going on two burst tyres after driving over a roundabout.

Ian Cram had also mounted pavements and was veering all over the road.

His reckless behaviour caught the attention of members of the public.

As a result, he was followed home by another driver who had called the police.

Cram, of Abercrombie Place, Menstrie, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday, May 18.

He admitted that on March 11, at Abercrombie Place and elsewhere, he drove a car dangerously, in an erratic manner, at excess speeds, swerved on to the opposing carriageway, drove over a roundabout, mounted a pavement and drove on burst tyres.

The 58-year-old also admitted that he drove having consumed excess alcohol.

His reading was 85 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, well beyond the legal limit of 22 microgrammes.

Depute fiscal Bernadette Cuthbertson said at around 10pm Cram's vehicle had attracted the attention of another motorist because of his erratic driving.

This driver followed Cram and contacted the police, as well as a friend who was also in the area.

The second driver also began following Cram to his home where police attended.

Cram's white Mazda had mounted pavements, swerved about the road and hit a roundabout, causing two tyres to burst. Cram ignored the damage and continued to drive.

Defence solicitor Kelly Howe said her client was a first offender.

Sheriff Neil Bowie said Cram's conduct had placed members of the public and other road users "in significant danger".

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with 180 hours of unpaid work.

Cram was also banned from driving for two years and until he passes the extended test.
