High Range Drink Driver 0.288% – St Leonards

Police implore motorists to remember the dangers of drink driving after a 53-year-old male driver in St Leonards returned a high range drink driving reading of 0.288% – nearly five times the legal limit.

The man from Kings Meadows was intercepted round 11am yesterday.

He was formally charged and bailed to appear before the Launceston Court at a later date. He was also instantly disqualified for a period of 24 months.

Police implore motorists to never drive under the influence of alcohol – which is one of the fatal five contributors to fatal and serious crashes on our roads.
