Twice the le­gal limit

Gatton Star - - News -

A YOUNG man has been caught driv­ing while over twice the le­gal al­co­hol limit, the Gat­ton Mag­is­trates Court has heard.

Po­lice Pros­e­cu­tor Steve De Lissa said Hugh Dou­glas Young, 17, was pulled over on the War­rego Hwy, due to his er­ratic driv­ing.

An RBT re­vealed a read­ing of 0.102.

Young’s li­cence was sus­pended im­me­di­ately.

The court heard Young would lose his job with­out his li­cence and he ad­mit­ted it was a “fool­ish de­ci­sion.”

Mag­is­trate Gra­ham Lee said his good traf­fic his­tory and age went in his favour.

Young was fined $600 and his li­cence was dis­qual­i­fied for three months.
