Motorist taken off the road for 25 months

A MOTORIST has been taken off the road for 25 months after being convicted of drug-driving and drink-driving.

Sean West, 28, had a fight with his partner and drove to Brisbane where he took methylamphetamines.

He was driving home when he was intercepted during a traffic operation near Gatton and recorded a positive drug test on September 12.

West was again arrested on Thursday night after committing a raft of traffic offences at Millmerran.

He had ridden an unregistered and uninsured motorcycle in Margaret St after drinking numerous beers. West blew 0.156%.

He was also unlicensed and not wearing a helmet.

West appeared in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to seven charges.

Defence solicitor Shane MacDonald said West was preparing to sell the motorbike and was testing it.

Magistrate Damian Carroll noted it was West's second high-range drink-driving charge and said he would be jailed if caught again in the near future.

"You're in a very sticky situation," Mr Carroll said.

West was also fined $1850.
