A learner motorcyclist has been caught riding while intoxicated twice in two hours by ACT Policing.
At about 3:40 pm on Sunday (27 September), police observed the 28-year-old learner motorcyclist riding on Belconnen Way with a pillion passenger. The passenger was not wearing a helmet.
The man returned a positive roadside breath test and a subsequent breath analysis at Belconnen Police Station returned a result of 0.114.
The legal limit for a learner licence holder is 0.00.
The rider’s licence was suspended. ACT Policing released him from custody to appear in Court at a later date.
Less than two hours later, at about 5:15 pm, police observed the same motorcyclist proceed through a red light in Belconnen.
The man again returned a positive roadside breath test. This time the reading was 0.117.
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court on 8 October on charges including two counts of drink driving, riding while licence suspended and riding through a red light.
