Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

IT WAS a near miss for a cy­clist al­legedly trav­el­ling nearly four times over the le­gal al­co­hol limit when he al­most crashed into a po­lice car last Wed­nes­day night.

About 8.40pm on Oc­to­ber 12, Whit­sun­day po­lice were driv­ing be­tween Her­mitage and Plan­ta­tion Dr when the cy­clist, be­lieved to be with­out a hel­met, and with no lights on the bike, was seen rid­ing down the mid­dle of the wrong lane against on­com­ing traf­fic.

The 31-year-old Ju­bilee rider was al­leged to have de­liv­ered a read­ing of 0.207% and will ap­pear in court on Oc­to­ber 31.
