Port Augusta drunk driver the latest substantially over the limit

police light.jpgIt’s becoming worryingly normal across the Upper Spencer Gulf and Mid North to hear of drunk drivers woefully over the limit.

Barely weeks after a man was caught by police driving more than six times over the limit in Clare, Port Augusta police have caught a man driving almost four times over.

The 47 year old man was allegedly picked up on Pybus St and breathalysed, recording a reading of 0.196, almost four times the limit.

He’s lost his license on the spot for 12 months and his car impounded for 28 days-set to appear in court at a later date.
