A Rosyth man, who overturned his car when driving dangerously, was sentenced to unpaid work but did none of it.

That led to 52-year-old Ian Davidson, of Torridon Lane, appearing back at Dunfermline Sheriff Court to be sentenced again for offences committed almost four years ago.

He previously 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 was originally sentenced to disqualification at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and put on a community payback order - but did not do the unpaid work.

As a result, in November, he appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court from custody.

At that time, 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,” replied Davidson from the dock.

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

However, when he returned back to the dock again, the court heard none of the hours had been done.

Sheriff John MacRitchie has now imposed a new sentence, a 60-day restriction of liberty order.

He warned Davidson: “The next alternative is prison, which is something you’ll want to avoid, no doubt.”
