Police target drink drivers
DRINK drivers have been warned it is just a matter of time before they are caught.
Tannum Sands Police have vowed to keep the roads safe and are taking proactive measures to put a stop to the increase in drink driving offences reported in the Boyne Island, Tannum Sands and Benaraby area during the past fortnight.
Police have detected 11 drink drivers in a period of nine days; a figure which does not sit well with Tannum Sands Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Tony Poli.
Snr Sgt Poli said of concern was the fact not all were minor readings, with one motorist recording a blood alcohol concentration reading of .17% in the middle of the day and another blowing .202% late on a Friday night.
"It is extremely concerning people are taking complete disregard of our drink driving laws," he said.
