An interstate truck driver will appear in court next month after he tested positive during a roadside drug test on Monday afternoon.

At around 2:45 pm, police were conducting a mobile patrol when they stopped a B-double truck with NSW registration plates on Parkwood Road, Macgregor.

The truck driver was given a drug test and returned a positive reading to a prohibited drug. He was taken to City Police Station for further testing.

The 37-year-old man will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court in December charged with driving a motor vehicle under the influence of a prohibited drug.
