ACT Policing arrested and charged a 62-year-old Hughes man early this morning (November 8) after he was caught driving while disqualified in Symonston.
Around 1.10am police conducted a traffic stop on a Hyundai Excel on Narrabundah Lane in Symonston. Checks on the driver revealed he was disqualified from driving in the ACT until 2070. Further checks revealed the vehicle the man was driving was unregistered and was bearing the incorrect number plates.
The man was arrested and taken to the City Watch House. He was charged with a number of traffic offences and bailed with strict bail conditions. He will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
Police wish to remind all motorists they will be targeting drink-driving until the end of the year.
