A drink driver was caught on one of the State’s busiest and most notorious roads for holidaymakers this morning.

About 8.50am on Wednesday 26 December, police received information from the public about a black sedan travelling south towards Port Wakefield on the Copper Coast Highway at about 180 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.

A motorcycle patrol from State Traffic Enforcement Section intercepted the vehicle at Windsor, by which time it was travelling at the speed limit.

The driver, a 29-year-old Seaton man, recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.098, nearly twice the legal limit.

He was reported for drink driving, issued with a six month instant loss of licence and his vehicle was impounded for 28 days.

Police urge all motorists to drive responsibly, especially over the holiday period when many families are travelling on our roads.  Anyone who sees other motorists driving dangerously or putting themselves or others at risk is encouraged to report it on 131 444.
