One really wonders what sort of lifestyle choices lead to the behaviour described today by the police:
- A 54-year-old ACTION bus driver will be summonsed to court after he was identified allegedly driving a bus whilst twelve times over the legal limit this afternoon (April 30).
ACT Policing officers were called to Kotara Crescent, Narrabundah about 3.00pm after receiving a request for assistance. Police located the bus on the side of the road and the driver was transported to the Woden Police Station, where he recorded an alcohol reading of 0.256, more than 12 times the legal limit for a bus driver in the ACT.
He will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on July 16.
No passengers were on the bus at the time of the incident.
Bear in mind that while TWELVE TIMES OVER THE LIMIT makes for a sensational headline the driver was *only* five times over the limit which applies to most drivers on the road.
