A man will be prevented from starting a car if he drinks alcohol thanks to a ruling in Orange Local Court where he was found guilty of mid-range drink-driving.
John Mackay, 22, of Bletchington Street, appeared before magistrate David Day after returning an alcohol reading of 0.99 during a random breath test.
According to police, officers stopped Mackay after seeing him driving on Wakeford Street at 1.15am on April 26.
He returned a positive result and was taken to Orange Police Station for a breath analysis and he said he drank five or six cans of Bundaberg rum between 6pm and 1am at Ophir.
Mr Day placed Mackay on a six-month community correction order, disqualified his driver's licence for once month and ordered him to have an interlock device installed in his car for 12 months.
