Some drivers are still not getting it. Why risk being caught when a personal alcolizer is just a few mouse clicks away, and from this very web site!
Operation Drink Drive 2 saw New South Wales Police conduct over 150,000 breath tests on motor vehicle drivers across NSW over the past weekend.
Arrested and charged for failing the alcolizer test were 197 drivers. This included a driver who was arrested for driving 87km/h in a 60km/h zone while later returning a breath analysis of 0.183. Another fool, a 35-year-old man, was observed swerving across the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail, he too returning a failed breathalyzer reading of 0.211 and was later charged with high-range drink-driving.
There were also lots of people speeding on NSW roads this weekend. A 32-year-old P-plater who was detected at 103km/h in a 50km/h zone in Marsfield, in Sydney's northwest, on Saturday night. His licence has been suspended.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, assistant commissioner John Hartley, said while the vast majority of drivers are doing the right thing, some still refuse to heed the warnings. "It only takes one driver to drink too much and get behind the wheel, for innocent lives to be lost," he said.
A high quality personal breathalyser, such as the DA8000 will assist you in knowing your BAC level and, hopefully, may stop you from getting behind the wheel and becoming yet another drink driving failed alcolizer statistic.
