A driver has been banned for three years after he was caught six times the drug drive limit and four times the limit on a separate occasion.
Andrew Martin appeared before Workington’s magistrates’ court on May 18 and admitted drug driving after he was found with 326 microgrammes of benzoylecgonine (cocaine) in his blood.
He was caught while driving on Station Road in Workington on November 27.
The second offence saw him drive on Lorton Road in Cockermouth on October 23 while he had 234 microgrammes of benzoylecgonine in his blood. He also admitted the second charge.
The legal limit is 50 microgrammes.
Martin, of Wasdale Close in Cockermouth, was given a community order requiring him to complete 80 hours of unpaid work within the next 12 months.
He was also disqualified from driving for three years.
For the second offence the 36-year-old was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £95 and £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.
