Police concern over drink-driving

DRINK-drivers continue to be a concern for Gympie Police, with a number of people caught over the weekend, said OIC of the Gympie District Traffic Branch Sergeant Peter Webster.

On Saturday a man, 54, was caught driving about 5pm with an alleged breath alcohol concentration of 0.188 per cent. Then about 8.30pm a man, allegedly unlicensed, was found with an alleged breath alcohol concentration of 0.057 per cent.

About 1am Sunday morning another man was caught on Noosa Road with alleged breath alcohol concentration of 0.136 per cent.

Sgt Webster said the weekend before a woman was caught driving with an alleged breath alcohol concentration of 0.213 per cent.

Sgt Webster said people were more worried about being caught than their chances of crashing.

“It continues to be a problem in Gympie despite ad campaigns and RBTs,” he said.
