Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

A 42-year-old Cottes­loe man was al­legedly caught by po­lice in Nar­ro­gin driv­ing while be­ing more than four times over the le­gal limit of al­co­hol.

His blood al­co­hol level was 0.237.

The man’s li­cence was im- me­di­ately dis­qual­i­fied on Satur­day af­ter po­lice were no­ti­fied about the al­leged dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

From last Fri­day to Mon­day this week, six lives were lost on WA roads in five dif­fer­ent crashes. Five of those six fa­tal­i­ties were on coun­try roads.

On Satur­day af­ter­noon, there was a se­ri­ous crash on a coun­try road in Ken­de­nup. A 26-year-old Ken­de­nup woman was taken to Al­bany Health Cam­pus with se­ri­ous in­juries be­fore be­ing trans­ferred to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal.

The driv­ing-un­der-the-in­flu­ence in­ci­dent in Nar­ro­gin came only a week af­ter the Shire of Nar­ro­gin called for WA driv­ers to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their ac­tions on the road.

That call was part of WALGA’s Road Rib­bon for Road Safety cam­paign which works to­wards achiev­ing zero deaths and se­ri­ous in­juries on our roads.
