A drunk woman was found slumped over the wheel of her car on a busy road in Dunfermline.
Beata Giecewicz fell asleep when driving on the dual carriageway near the King Malcolm Hotel in broad daylight.
An off-duty police officer had to wake Giecewicz, 43, of Inchgarvie Crescent, Dunfermline.
Giecewicz appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court with a Polish translator.
She admitted a charge that on October 8 in Queensferry Road, she drove a car when unfit to do so through drink or drugs.
Then, at Dunfermline police station she failed to provide breath specimens.
Depute fiscal Laura McManus said at around 2.05pm a Fiat 500 car was seen by witnesses.
It had been stopped near the King Malcolm Hotel roundabout.
She continued: “The accused was in the driver’s seat slumped over the steering wheel.”
An off-duty police officer opened the car door and tried to wake Giecewicz.
The officer could smell a strong odour of alcohol.
The depute fiscal said: “The accused was crying, drowsy and slurring her words.
“She appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.”
When taken to the police station Giecewicz refused to give breath specimens.
Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said her client was going through “difficult family circumstances” at the time.
Sheriff Charles MacNair banned Giecewicz from driving for 16 months.
He also went on to fine her £865.
