AN UNLICENSED driver caught trav­el­ling at more than 40km over the speed limit also al­legedly tested pos­i­tive for metham­phetamine. Po­lice in­ter­cepted the male driver at Eidsvold on Tues­day af­ter­noon. The man was al­legedly do­ing 121kmh in an 80kmh zone.

Po­lice said the man also tested pos­i­tive for metham­phetamine.

He is due to ap­pear in the Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court next month. Sergeant Chris James said the in­ci­dent was a re­minder that the num­ber of of­fi­cers be­ing trained in drug test­ing was in­creas­ing and that drug test­ing units from Bund­aberg, Mary­bor­ough and Kin­garoy had op­er­a­tions planned through the North Burnett area. “These op­er­a­tions have proved suc­cess­ful in the past and the num­ber of road­side tests in and around Eidsvold are set to in­crease,” Sgt James said.
