Ac­tions out of char­ac­ter

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A VERY “out of char­ac­ter” night re­sulted in Re­becca Lee Crane be­ing fined $650 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months after she was stopped by po­lice on Shute Har­bour Road, Ju­bilee Pocket, at about 10.25pm on Au­gust 3.

She told po­lice she was driv­ing home from a func­tion at Mag­nums and had drunk three glasses of wine. She recorded a read­ing of 0.091.

Crane told Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court her job re­quired her to be on call and at­tend emer­gency sit­u­a­tions, and she had to use her car seven days a week from 7am to 7pm.

“I do drive clients, so it does put my po­si­tion a bit at risk,” she said.

Mag­is­trate Si­mon Young said the read­ing was right at the top of low-range, but he would take into ac­count the im­pact los­ing her li­cence would have on Crane.

No con­vic­tion was recorded.
