3 Drink Drivers Nabbed In The South West Over The Weekend

Local Police have been left wondering what part of the message isn't getting through, following three drink drivers being detected at more than twice the legal BAC limit over the weekend.

Acting Inspector Tania Barbary from Warrnambool Police described it as a weekend that 'blows the mind'.

"These results are just astounding, it's frustrating to think that people are still not getting the message, not only are they a risk to themselves but they are a risk to everyone who shares the road with them" she said.

"The impact of any potential collision has an effect on the other road user, on the person themselves, the families and the emergency services who attend, it's just not on".
