Terang Police Nab Drink Driver

Terang Police have been left disappointed after intercepting a driver on Friday night, who returned a breath alcohol reading more than four times the legal limit.

The driver's licence was immediately suspended and their vehicle impounded.

Senior Constable Melissa Gray from Terang Police, said it was disappointing to see such behaviour, which was made even more dangerous by the wet road conditions.

"The male was intercepted in Terang on Friday night at about 7:20pm, and he returned an evidentiary breath test of .216... or four times the legal limit" she said.

Eight infringement notices were issued to motorists for excessive speed, most of which were between 15 and 20 km/h over the speed limit.

"There was no operation, we were just out and about targeting speeding drivers, the weather was less than desirable with the rain" said Senior Constable Gray.

"We were a bit disappointed in the amount of drivers we detected speeding".

Police have warned they will continue to patrol and issue fines in order to reduce road trauma.
