Superintendent Brett Kidner said it was pleasing to see so many people doing the right thing but there is still a small percentage of the community that isn’t getting the message.
“Our message is simple: drink or drive. Every police car is equipped with breath testing equipment, you can be caught anywhere, anytime.”
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
