Cambridge drink-driver caught twice in six months – and with bald tyre – is jailed





A drink-driver from Cambridge has been jailed after being caught twice in six months.

Stefan Hreniuc, of Fen Road, Cambridge, was initially given a four-month suspended sentence and disqualified from driving for 25 months after being caught more than three times the limit - 111mcg in 100ml of breath - in July last year.

Then police on patrol in the city pulled over a silver Mercedes C220 in Glenmere Close at around 11am on 27 January and foundHreniuc at the wheel.

He admitted to drinking “100ml of vodka” that morning - and blew 111mcg at the roadside, which is more than three times the legal limit of 35mcg per 100 millilitres of breath. He gave an evidential reading of 75 in custody.

At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on 29 January, Hreniuc was jailed for four months and four weeks after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified, drink driving and using a passenger vehicle with tyres with insufficient tread.

He was also disqualified from driving for three years and three months.

PC Andy Holliday, who investigated, said: “Hreniuc has shown total disregard for the sentences imposed on him by the courts and continued to put himself and other road users in danger.

“The sentence reflects the seriousness of Hreniuc’s actions.”

The force has a dedicated, confidential hotline, 0800 032 0845, which is available 24/7 and provides the public with the chance to provide information about anyone they think may be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
