Police were called to the Nettlefold St address around 7.30am today (Saturday, February 9) when it was reported that a white Toyota Camry had failed to negotiate a corner and had struck a building.

The driver and passengers in the vehicle left the scene after the collision.

The driver later came to the front office of the Belconnen Police Station and made admissions. He submitted to a breath analysis and found to have a Blood Alcohol reading of 0.114. He is also a provisional licence-holder, and his licence was immediately suspended.

He will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

Any witnesses to the collision and who have not spoken to police are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au.

“how could they prove that he didn’t go home and down a few drinks before going to the cops.”

That is a seperate offence in itself. In N.S.W. it’s called ‘Willfully alter blood concentration’ and carries a maximum of 18 months. (Of course in the ACT that would translate as a severe finger wagging and a taxpayer funded taxi voucher home, but it is still on the books…)

It’s a well known story.

If he reads this you might have given him some ideas on a defence. I mean how could they prove that he didn’t go home and down a few drinks before going to the cops.

If you knew the legislation, you’d know that’s not a defence to drink driving.

The white Camry. The white Commodore for the parsimonious.
