A 23-year-old man from Stirling will face the ACT Magistrates Court after being caught more than three times the legal alcohol limit.
About 10.45pm on Friday, 8 December 2023, police conducted a traffic stop on a Toyota Hilux on Streeton Drive, Weston.
The man underwent a breath screening test which was positive. He was subsequently transported to Woden Police Station, where he returned a breath analysis of 0.180 grams of alcohol per 210 L of breath.
The driver was issued an immediate suspension notice, suspending his right to drive in the ACT for 90 days.
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date charged with drink driving.
ACT Policing is urging drivers to plan ahead before a night out heading into the festive season, as penalties can and will be imposed on those caught drink driving.
