A DRINK driving carer who crashed his car more than twice the limit has been given a warning from the care watchdog.

Kris Fearon was given a two-year warning on his registration after his convictions for driving dangerously over the limit, while employed as a support worker at Rainbow Services, Ayr.

Fearon drove dangerously at excessive speeds while repeatedly swerving between lanes and onto the hard shoulder of the A77 southbound near Fenwick in October 12, 2019.

While approaching other cars at speed, he then had to brake heavily to avoid a collision, before then smashing into a roundabout – with his car leaving the A77 and landing on the off ramp of the M77 near junction eight.

After a urine test, he was found to have 168 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of urine – exceeding the 67mg in 100ml limit.

The Scottish Social Services Council [SSSC] told Fearon: “You failed to act lawfully and placed other people at risk of serious, or even fatal harm. Your actions demonstrate

a disregard for the safety of others and as such raise concern over your values and suitability to work as a social service worker.”“You have failed to engage with the SSSC in a meaningful manner other than giving a brief explanation of the difficulties you were going through at the time.

“You have not provided any reflection or insight into your behaviour or the potential consequences of such behaviour.”
