ACT Policing has charged a 22-year-old man after officers came across a single vehicle collision on Luxton Street, Belconnen, last Saturday (May 5).
About 3:30 am, officers came across an extensively damaged vehicle which had knocked over a steel light pole in the centre of a roundabout.
The driver, who held a Queensland learner’s permit, was taken to Belconnen Police Station for a breath analysis and returned a result of 0.144.
ACT Policing said the man was charged with driving a motor vehicle with alcohol in blood/breath, driving as an unaccompanied learner driver, driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, not displaying L plates, and reckless driving offences.
He was granted bail and will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
ACT Policing would like to remind all learner and provisional drivers that they must have a zero blood-alcohol-content when behind the wheel, and that learner drivers must be accompanied by a full licence holder in the front passenger seat.
