Man finds drinking six vodkas then driving isn't a good idea

SIX vodkas in three hours and a Gladstone man thought he was fine to drive.

At 8.14pm on January 16, police pulled over Jason Barrie Gill on Palm Dr.

The 30-year-old blew 0.133 on a roadside breath test.

He told police he thought he was fine to drive and was not aware of what 0.05 felt like.

In court on Monday, Gill was fined $800 and disqualified from driving for four months, with a conviction recorded.
