Licence bad start
A 20-YEAR-OLD female learner driver was caught behind the wheel unacompanied and blowing 0.024 in the early hours of last Thursday morning on Shute Harbour Rd, Jubilee Pocket. An 18-year-old male P-plate driver was also caught last Thursday blowing 0.031 on Shute Harbour Rd, Cannonvale. Whitsunday police officer Nathan Bentley said the two incidents served as a reminder to the community that learner and P-plate drivers are required to have zero alcohol content.
“Even one beer and you are over,” he said.
