Over the limit
A DRINK driver pulled over at 8.30pm on June 20 returned a reading more than five times the legal limit.
The 44-year-old Cannonvale woman returned an alleged reading of 0.256 after being stopped by police on Shute Harbour Rd, Cannonvale for an unrelated traffic matter. She has been arrested and charged with driving while under the influence, driving unregistered and was already on an interlock condition. She will appear in the Proserpine Magistrates Court on July 17. There were 10 drink drivers in the Whitsundays in the past week which police called a “concerning increase” with other readings including a 29-year-old Cannonvale man blowing 0.171 and a 31-year-old from Kings Beach blowing 0.193.
