Alleged drink driver caught in school zone


AN alleged drunk driver was pulled over on 23 May after being clocked driving nearly double the speed limit in a Cheltenham school zone.

A 1990 Toyota Cressida was caught driving at 72kmph in a 40kmph zone around 9am at a Charman Road school. Police officers intercepted the car and breath tested the driver. He returned a positive preliminary breath test.

The 62-year-old Beaumont man refused to accompany police back to the station for an evidentiary breath test. He was then arrested.

The man is expected to be charged on summons with speeding, fail to accompany police for a breath test, unlicensed driving and drunk in a public place.

His car was impounded at a cost of $878.50.
