P-plate drink driver


ROSEBUD police had their work cut out maintaining order at a large, unauthorised car night at Arthur’s Seat Summit car park, Thursday 29 October.

About 30 enthusiasts had gathered when police saw the driver of white four-wheel-drive practicing his off-road skills in the garden bed, 10.50pm.

The 19-year-old P-plater later recorded a 0.118 per cent blood alcohol reading at Rosebud police station – way over the 0.00 per cent reading stipulated for P-platers.

The Capel Sound man’s licence was suspended and his vehicle impounded. He is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving-related offences.

The impoundment was part of Operation Saturn – an 18-day statewide policing operation targeting traffic offences.
