There are fears for the Sugababe singer Amelle Berrabah’s safety, now that she may be forced to use public transport after being slapped with a 14 month driving ban.
The singer was given a roadside breath test which proved positive, she claims she had drunk alcohol the night before and did not think it would still be in her system.
Ms Berrabah’s defence said it would be difficult for the singer to be without a car when she has a busy work schedule and carries out charity work. However, the judge ruled that she should have thought of this prior to committing the offence.
The ban could be reduced to 10 months if she completes a drink-driving rehabilitation course. The singer states that although she was not driving dangerously or carrying any passengers, she is deeply sorry for her actions and realises that she was in the wrong.
Holly Harper of Britannia Driving School said: “Alcohol takes a long time to leave your body. There is no quick way to sober up. You may be over the legal drink drive limit for many hours after drinking.”
