Three drunk drivers caught on ACT roads in one day


ACT Policing is imploring drivers to think about the dangers of drink driving after three separate incidents in one day.

The first incident at about 3pm yesterday involved a two-vehicle collision in Narrabundah.

The driver of one vehicle left the scene after failing to stop and provide details to the other party.

Police later identified the driver as a 61-year-old Narrabundah woman who returned a positive blood alcohol reading of .166.

Her licence was suspended and she’ll face court at a later date.

In another incident, police attended a single-vehicle collision in Gordon at about 8pm, where the driver was subjected to a roadside breath test.

He returned a reading of .133.

Later that night, another driver was detected doing 106 in an 80 zone.

He returned a reading of .109.

Officer in Charge of Traffic Operations, Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman says the number of drivers caught driving under the influence of alcohol was not acceptable.
