High range drink driver off the road

ACT Policing will summons a 40-year-old Rivett woman who was caught drink driving in Duffy yesterday afternoon, driving her three children home (Sunday October 26).

About 3.28pm, members of the Road Safety Operations Team (RSOT) intercepted a white Nissan Pulsar sedan on Eucumbene Drive, Duffy for a roadside screening test. The 40-year-old driver returned a positive blood alcohol reading of 0.282.

Members of the RSOT had been conducting random breath testing in the area.

The woman was issued an Immediate Suspension Notice and will be summonsed to appear in Court at a later date facing charges of high range prescribed concentration of alcohol.

The woman was identified as a repeat drink driving offender due to offences committed in New South Wales.
