A 26-year-old was caught allegedly driving drunk on Barton Rd at 4am yesterday morning and a 48-year-old was arrested on Cootharaba Rd just after 10am.

A police spokesman said it was a warning for motorists to consider their travel options for the morning following a night of drinking.

"People need to make sure they give sufficient time for the alcohol to get out of their system before driving,” the spokesman said.

Meanwhile police are calling for information on unruly damage to a house under construction on Pedersen Rd, Southside, after a lump of concrete was thrown through the building's sliding glass door overnight Friday.

The damage reportedly occurred between 3.30pm Friday and 8.30am Saturday, a police spokesman said.

If you have any information relating to the damage please contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
