A 32-year-old Griffith man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday, May 15) in relation to traffic offences, property damage and an outstanding First Instant Warrant.
Around 10.15pm last night (Tuesday, May 14) police were travelling westbound on Adelaide Avenue, Deakin when they observed a Subaru Impreza parked in the bicycle lane with hazard lights on.
Police pulled behind the vehicle to conduct a random breath test but the driver indicated right and drove slowly through the intersection onto Hopetoun Circuit.
Police believed the driver was trying to get off the main road for safety reasons, however the vehicle continued on.
