The ACT Policing Mobile Traffic Operations Team apprehended a drink-driver twice within one hour early Sunday morning (19 July 2015).
A 43-year-old Isaacs woman was stopped at about 1:00am on Coranderrk Street in Canberra City, after police observed a silver Peugeot swerving on the road. Police conducted a breath analysis which returned a result of 0.126 which is over twice the legal limit for a normal licensed driver. The driver’s license was seized and was issued an Immediate Suspension Notice.
At about 2:30am police observed the same silver Peugeot driving on London Circuit. Police stopped the vehicle and the same 43-year-old Isaacs woman was found to be the driver. Police conducted another breath analysis which returned a result of 0.106.
The woman was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House, was bailed and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date where she will face two charges of drink-driving and one charge of driving with a suspended license.
