A 91-year-old gogo in Britain could potentially be the world's oldest drink-driver after she crashed her luxury car into a streetlight recently.

Police apprehended Pauline Horrigan after the incident because she failed two breathalyser tests, Briefly.co.za learned.

According to a Mirror report, the gogo apparently lost control of her Audi A3 along a road in Essex. A magistrate subsequently handed her a 14-month driving ban.

However, Pauline reportedly pledged to never get behind the wheel again, bringing an end to her remarkable 76-year driving experience.

Incredibly, she never had an accident prior to this in her entire experience as a driver.

She deeply regrets this incident. She is a lady who has driven 76 years without an accident and previous court appearance.

Age is proving to be no barrier at all for elderly people who wish to continue driving.
