Drunk Mackay driver caught more than four times over limit
TWO high-range drink drivers were caught over the weekend as Mackay Police continued to crack down on motorists over the festive season.
Senior Constable Steve Smith said while there were improvements in drink driving results on Saturday and Sunday, eight drink drivers were caught as well as four drug drivers.
"Two of those drink drivers caught returning readings greater than .15 per cent. The largest reading being .202 per cent on Wood Street, Mackay at 2.35 am on December 16," Snr Const Smith said.
"While the numbers of drink drivers caught are much improved on past weekend periods - we honestly should not be seeing any at all."
"Expect to see police efforts continue in this field as we look to keep our roads as safe as possible for all motorists."
