MATTHEW Munro thought he would be under the limit when he got the call to help his sister who had just been in an accident. However when he was stopped by police for a random breath test near Moura on August 12, he registered a mid-range blood-alcohol reading of .14 per cent.
In Biloela Magistrates Court last week, Munro pleaded guilty to driving while over the middle alcohol limit.
He was fined $750 and disqualified from driving for six months, the magistrate allowing a work licence in order to maintain his livelihood.
CHRISTIAN Wentzel was pulled over by police on June 3 in Moura for a roadside breath test, where he admitted he had consumed three beers and a Canadian club before driving. He registered a bloodalcohol reading of .87 per cent and was ordered to appear before Biloela Magistrates Court on August 15. Wentzel appeared on one charge of driving over the general alcohol limit. He asked to adjourn the hearing in order to apply for a work licence.
