A woman called police when a drink-driver more than three times the limit hit her car from behind at traffic lights in Spalding.
Darius Suika (36) was banned from driving for 25 months, ordered to do 170 hours’ unpaid work and must pay £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge for driving with 108 microgrammes of alcohol in breath on March 29.
Boston magistrates will allow Suika, of Harvey’s Close, Spalding, to cut six months off the ban if he completes a rehabilitation course.
Suika pleaded guilty at Wednesday’s hearing.
Paul Wood, prosecuting, said Georgina Stevens was waiting at the lights in West Elloe Avenue, near the Twin Bridges, when her Honda Civic was struck from behind by Suika’s black Volvo at “a relatively slow speed”.
He said there were only a few scratches to her vehicle, but she smelled alcohol on his breath and the police were called.
