A 51-year-old Rosyth man who was put on a court order after overturned his car when driving dangerously ignored the unpaid work and ended up behind bars.

As a result, Ian Davidson, of Torridon Lane, Rosyth, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He had admitted on April 24, 2020, on Queensferry Road, A90, Burnshot, near South Queensferry, he drove a car dangerously, repeatedly failed to comply with red traffic lights, failed to adhere to road and lane markings, struck a roadside verge, a traffic cone and a roadside barrier, causing his car to leave the road and overturn.

He also drove without insurance.

He had been sentenced to disqualification at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and put on a community payback order but decided not to do the unpaid work.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland told Davidson: “This was incredibly foolish. You should have just completed it. I strongly suggest that you do it this time.”

“I will,” said Davidson from the dock.

The sheriff imposed a new community payback order with 100 hours of unpaid work.
