An Auckland barrister has pleaded not guilty to a charge of drink driving.

Fijian-born Satendra Prakash Singh, 60, today entered the plea at the Auckland District Court.

He was charged with careless driving with excess blood alcohol after being stopped by police on Church St, Onehunga in July.

Singh gave a reading of 144mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood - nearly twice the legal limit.

The barrister is representing himself on the charge.

He will re-appear in court on January 30.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
