Driver, 60, mounted the kerb forcing pedestrians to jump out of the way
A SKEGNESS pensioner has been banned from driving for two years after failing to provide a breath sample.
Jean Taylor, 60, of The Fountain, Skegness Sands Holiday Village, was stopped by police on August 29 when the car she was driving pulled out in front of them.
She mounted the kerb, forcing pedestrians to jump out of the way, Skegness Magistrates' Court heard on September 17.
The car then straightened up and stopped to turn right into the caravan site where she lived, but had gone too far past the junction and had to reverse.

Although the police car sounded its horn and flashed its lights, she almost reversed into them before making the turn.
She admitted she had been drinking to the police.
Mitigating, Andrea Wilkes said Mrs Taylor tried to blow into the apparatus but just couldn't do it because she was in a 'sheer state of panic'.
Ms Wilkes said Mrs Taylor had since sold the car and did not intend to drive again.
In addition to the disqualification, the magistrates also fined her £430 and ordered her to pay a £43 victim surcharge and £85 in costs.
