DRIV­ING OVER THE LIMIT

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

Linda John­son ap­peared in court on Mon­day Au­gust 14 charged with two driv­ing of­fences. On April 23 at Smith­field about 4.38pm po­lice pulled John­son over and con­ducted an RBT. She re­turned a pos­i­tive read­ing of 0.066 and was found to be driv­ing with a sus­pended li­cence. John­son said in court that she had been go­ing through fam­ily court and has had to re­lo­cate and wasn’t aware that her li­cence had been sus­pended due to fines not be­ing paid. As far as she knew her fines were be­ing paid through Cen­tre­pay and she was not aware it had stopped. She said she had three beers prior to driv­ing and didn’t think she was over the limit. Mag­is­trate Tom Braes said if you are go­ing to drink don’t drive. She was fined $600 and dis­qual­i­fied from hold­ing a li­cence for one month.
