AN interim driving ban was imposed on Littleport man Martin Lambillion on Thursday - after he admitted his third alcohol related offence.
Back in 1997, he was banned from driving for two years for failing to take a breath test.
And in 2000, the 29-year-old had a three-year ban for driving when over the alcohol limit.
Prosecuting at Ely Magistrates' Court on Thursday, prosecutor Yetunde Fawehinmi told how Lambillion, of Longfield Road, Littleport, was stopped by police at 5.40pm on April 28 because he was not wearing a seat belt.

He admitted having drunk two pints, and gave a breath test reading of 76 mcgs of alcohol in 100 mls of breath, more than double the legal limit of 35 mcgs.

Solicitor Jacqui Baldwin said Lambillion had no convictions for driving while disqualified, and he was currently subject to a community order with the probation service.
Adjourning sentencing for four weeks, presiding magistrate Lord Fairhaven told Lambillion: "Your reading was twice over the limit, we feel we need more information about the progress you are making with your community penalty.
"We are not excluding the possibility of a prison sentence at this stage.
