Pair banned from the road following drink-drive campaign

Two Eastbourne women have been banned from driving following Sussex Police’s drink-drive campaign over Christmas.

More than 100 people were stopped and charged with drink driving during the festive period and of those, 24 have been banned from the road.

Each of the 24 defendants pleaded guilty to drink-driving offences or failing to provide a specimen for analysis.

The two Eastbourne women involved are Leeane Reeve, 31, and Jacqueline White, 43.

Leeane Reeve, of Sumach Close, admitted drink-driving, was ordered to pay £50 costs and a £60 victim surcharge and is banned from driving for 24 months.

Jacqueline White of Bedford Road admitted drink-driving, was fined £380, ordered to pay £85 costs and a £38 victim surcharge and is banned from driving for 18 months.

Chief Inspector Natalie Moloney said, “Each of these drivers are beginning 2014 with a driving conviction and the ongoing problems that will cause.

“None of them will be able to use the roads legally this year and all face greatly increased insurance premiums if they want to drive after their bans end.

“Thankfully their actions have not led to the deaths of anyone but each of the motorists was selfish enough to take their life and the lives of other road users in their hands.

“Drink and drug-driving remains a problem in Sussex that we are determined to tackle.”
