Drink driv­ing fine

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN caught drink driv­ing has been fined $500 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months. Ben­jamin An­drew Howard, 44, of Can­non­vale, pleaded guilty in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day to driv­ing over the gen­eral al­co­hol limit. Pros­e­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court Howard recorded a blood al­co­hol read­ing of 0.084 when he was stopped by po­lice on Shute Har­bour Rd, at 11.40pm on Novem­ber 16. Rep­re­sent­ing him­self, Howard said he thought he had spaced his drinks out enough to be un­der the limit. No con­vic­tion was recorded.
