Too drunk, too fast

By johnboy - 20 May 2011 9

A 23-year-old Harrison man will be summonsed to court after police caught him travelling at nearly double the speed limit early this morning (Friday, May 20).

About 2.35am a Gungahlin Police Sergeant was conducting laser speed detection on Flemington Road, Franklin when he saw a car travelling at high speed. The car was detected travelling at 138km/h in a 70km/h sign posted zone.

Police intercepted the vehicle and the driver provided a breath test which returned a positive result. The man was taken back to Gungahlin Police Station where breath analysis indicated he had an alleged Alcohol Content (AC) of 0.105.

As the man is restricted to a limit of 0.00 he was issued with an immediate suspension notice.

He will be summonsed to attend the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date, charged with unlicenced driver, exceed speed limit and drive motor vehicle with alcohol in blood/breath.

So an unlicensed driver has a limit of 0.000 BAC these days?

All ‘special drivers’ have a 0.00 limit which includes L & P drivers, taxi drivers, suspended & disqualified drivers, foreign drivers from a non-recognised country, driving supervisors & instructors etc.

How come the report doesn’t lead with the fact that he was an infinite number of times the legal limit?

Sums it up perfectly!

Unfortunately, I think we can all agree that if we were to be outside the Court for his appearance there, we’d see him drive into the carpark – and probably drunk too. (Repeat) DUIs don’t seen to be taken that seriously by the Courts.
