South Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Kingaroy Road Polic­ing Unit, to­gether with Queens­land Boat­ing and Fish­eries Pa­trol, car­ried out a one- day op­er­a­tion at Boon­dooma Dam dur­ing the 2017 Boon­dooma Dam Fam­ily Yel­low­belly Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day. More than 20 boats were in­ter­cepted for drug and al­co­hol test­ing and rou­tine checks. Queens­land Boat­ing and Fish­eries Pa­trol is­sued six of­fi­cial cau­tions for mi­nor of­fences, in­clud­ing fish­ing with­out a fish­ing li­cence, be­ing un­able to pro­duce a fish­ing li­cence and use of in­cor­rect floats, as well as marine in­fringe­ment no­tices for en­ter­ing a bathing re­serve and use of an un­reg­is­tered ves­sel. Se­nior Con­sta­ble Jade Miller said it was pleas­ing to see no pos­i­tive drug or al­co­hol tests de­tected on the wa­ter. “Of course, when it comes to drink and drug driv­ing, the same rules ap­ply on the wa­ter as they do on the road,” he said.
