Drink driver nabbed in Taylors Lakes


A Sydenham man had his licence immediately suspended after allegedly being caught driving almost six times over the legal limit in Taylors Lakes last night.

Officers intercepted the driver on Watergardens Circuit Road about 4.23pm on May 23.

The 42-year-old man underwent a preliminary breath test, before accompanying members to a nearby station where he returned an alleged evidentiary result of .288.

As well as having his licence suspended, the Sydenham man had his car impounded for 30 days at a cost of $932.40 and is expected to be charged on summons with traffic offences.
