Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

ONE man’s re­ac­tion to get­ting caught drink driv­ing last Thurs­day was to con­tinue to drink him­self into a stu­por and get be­hind the wheel again.

The 39-year-old Can­non­vale mo­torist was ini­tially picked up by po­lice at 7.30pm at Sch­nap­per St, Can­non­vale, with a read­ing of 0.088. Just over two hours later, at 9.50pm, the same driver was again caught by po­lice at the Is­land Dr in­ter­sec­tion on Shute Har­bour Rd with a read­ing of 0.210.

The man’s li­cence has been sus­pended. Se­nior Sergeant Nathan Blain said there were a high num­ber of drink driv­ers last week and there would be ad­di­tional ran­dom breath tests.
