Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AF­TER an in­crease in traf­fic of­fences in­clud­ing one driver blow­ing eight times the le­gal limit, Gayndah po­lice would like to re­mind driv­ers about their obli­ga­tions.

Gayndah Po­lice Sergeant Josh Ryan said fig­ures gath­ered from the be­gin­ning of 2016 showed a wor­ry­ing in­crease in traf­fic-re­lated of­fences.

“These in­clude 34 drug driv­ers be­ing de­tected, 11 drink driv­ers and over 250 traf­fic in­fringe­ment no­tices be­ing is­sued,” Sergeant Ryan said. “A road user was de­tected driv­ing 0.323, al­most eight times the le­gal limit and an­other road user driv­ing at over 140 kmh.

“These are com­pletely un­ac­cept­able and con­cern­ing to all peo­ple.”
