Gatton Star - - NEWS | WELCOME -

SPEED, im­paired driv­ing, seat belts, fa­tigue and inat­ten­tion con­tinue to be the tar­get of po­lice across the state and Lowood is no ex­cep­tion. Lowood Po­lice Sta­tion of­fi­cer-in-charge Se­nior Sergeant Bruce Peel is urg­ing driv­ers to be aware on the fa­tal five. “The fa­tal five be­hav­iours con­trib­ute to most fa­tal and in­jury crashes on our roads,” he said.

Last week, a 19-year-old Lowood man was in­ter­cepted by po­lice on the Brisbane Val­ley High­way and charged with drink driv­ing af­ter re­turn­ing a blood al­co­hol read­ing of 0.149 per cent. He was served with a no­tice to ap­pear in the Ipswich Mag­is­trates Court on May 31. An­other man was ar­rested by po­lice af­ter crash­ing his car at One Mile on Mon­day, May 6. The 33-year-old Lai­d­ley man was tracked by the po­lice dog unit and charged with sev­eral of­fences in­clud­ing pub­lic nui­sance, driv­ing whilst un­der the in­flu­ence of liquor or a drug and fail­ing to pro­vide a road­side breath test.
