A Narromine man busted mid-range drink-driving has told a court he's been out of trouble for 13 years and on the straight and narrow.
Scott Edwin Wrigley, 50, was spotted by police driving a Holden Colorado ute along the Mitchell Highway near Rawsonville about 4.20pm on May 8.
Police indicated for Wrigley to pull over and approached him when officers smelt a "strong smell of alcohol" on his breath.
Wrigley admitted to police "I know I'm going to be over" when they said they were going to perform a roadside breath test.
The test revealed a reading of 0.094.
According to police Wrigley told the officers he was travelling from Trangie to Dubbo to allow his daughter to use his vehicle to move house, and said he knew he may have been over the limit, but chose to drive regardless.
Representing himself in Dubbo Local Court, Wrigley pleaded guilty to mid-range drink-driving.
Wrigley told the court he resided in Narromine, but required a licence to travel to Warren for work, and had been off the road for six weeks since the offence.
The court heard his last driving offence was in 2007.
"I've been out of trouble for 13 years, I'm on the straight and narrow," he said.
Magistrate Gary Wilson granted him a 12-month conditional release order to be of good behaviour, and was eligible to apply for his licence through Service NSW.
