Roadside Breath Tests and Crash Leads to Arrest


A driver who was caught by police in February at a stationary roadside breath test site was sentenced in local court and fined $880 and had his driver’s licence disqualified for five months.

The  man was stopped by police and at first did not believe he was over the limit, saying that the device must have been faulty.

He became agitated and another alcolizer device was used to test him and he returned another positive result.

The man was arrested and taken to the police station where a breath analysis returned a mid-range reading of 0.117.

The man had his licence confiscated and suspended.

This incident is a reminder to never drink and drive. Always ensure you have arranged safe, reliable transport home before you even begin drinking.
