Denied he’d been driving after causing crash
A motorist was involved in a collision with two vehicles because of his dangerous driving and speeding in Dunfermline.
However, Graeme Robertson, asked his partner to say she had been driving to avoid being breath-tested when police came to his home.
The accident happened on 17th March as Robertson drove a BMW through the town, leading to a guilty plea at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
Robertson (42), of Keirsbeath Court, Kingseat, admitted that in Bellyeoman Road and Robertson Road, he drove dangerously and too close to the vehicle in front of him.
He also drove at excessive speed and failed to keep the vehicle under control, causing it to collide with and damage two cars and then left the road.
Robertson also admitted that the same day at his home, knowing he had been involved in the collision and prior to that had consumed alcohol, he did, with the intention of evading detection and prosecution for road traffic offences and in particular drink driving, induce his partner to state to police officers that she had been the driver.
He also stated to police offices that she had been the driver, causing them not to carry out a breath-test on him and he did this with intent to pervert the course of justice and he did pervert the course of justice.
Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Robertson will be sentenced on 26th July.
