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.
