Esperance Police conduct random breath tests

A 25-year-old female from West Beach has had her driver’s licence disqualified after she was caught drink driving on Saturday afternoon, December 2.

The woman was stopped for a random breath test on Norseman Road in Chadwick and later taken to Esperance Police Station where she was charged with having a blood alcohol concentration in excess of 0.08.

The driver’s licence was disqualified on the spot and she is expected to be summonsed to appear in Esperance Magistrate Court on January 3, 2018.

Esperance Police have continued to enforce road traffic legislation throughout this financial year.

From July until November 30 of this year, a total of 3877 motorists have been breath tested, with 29 drivers, 0.74 per cent, charged with drink driving.

Esperance Police senior sergeant Richard Moore said whilst police understood not everyone would abide by the road traffic legislation, it was ‘pleasing’ to see the majority of drivers complying, making the roads a safe environment for everyone.
