Woman busted on Sunshine Coast officially Qld's worst drink driver

AN ORANGE woman has returned the highest blood alcohol concentration reading of the state with an alleged 0.245 per cent at Peregian Beach.

She has been charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of driving unregistered.

Five days into the Christmas Road Safety Campaign began, 17 people were caught without their seatbelts on while behind the wheel.

Since the beginning of Festive Break, 84 drivers have been caught without their seatbelts while driving their vehicle.

So far 339 drivers have returned positive tests for drink-and drug-driving over the Christmas period.

The state's most high-risk speeding motorist was captured allegedly travelling at 201 km/hour in an 100km/hour zone on the Pacific Motorway at Slacks Creek.

Police across Queensland continue to target high-risk road user behaviour including the Fatal Five: speeding, drink and drug driving, distracted driving, fatigue and failing to wear a seatbelt.

The Festive Break phase of the Christmas Road Safety Campaign will continue until January 3, 2018.
