A MUNDUBBERA man has been handed a 15-month dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion he pleaded guilty to driv­ing three times above the le­gal al­co­hol limit. Gayn­dah Mag­is­trate Court on Thurs­day heard Kerry Michael Priem was pulled over by po­lice on Kennedy St, Mundubbera, on Jan­uary 14 and he blew 0.156 in a breath test. Mag­is­trate An­drew Hack­ett said the 59-year-old man needed to re-eval­u­ate his life. “Will it be when you run over and kill some­one,” Mr Hack­ett asked. Priem told the court he be­lieved he had the willpower to stop drink driv­ing. Mr Hack­ett also fined Priem $2000. “It seems to me you have a prob­lem with drink­ing and I can’t tell what you’ve ever done to stop that. You’d bet­ter get your drink­ing un­der con­trol,” Mr Hack­ett said.
