A Griffith drink driver has lost his license after allegedly blowing three times the legal limit in a roadside breath test over the weekend.
The 30-year-old male was travelling east along Banna Avenue when he was stopped by police for a mobile random breath test at about 11:45pm on Sunday.
The Hanwood resident produced his license and allegedly told police he had consumed "two beers" earlier that evening.
Officers said they noticed the mans eyes were red and watery, and his speaking was sluggish.
The driver was subjected to a roadside breath test which returned a positive result and he was subsequently arrested and taken to Griffith Police Station for further breath analysis.
In the second test, the man allegedly recorded a positive reading of 0.185, more than three times the legal limit.
His licence was immediately suspended and he was charged with high range drink driving.
Costly grocery trip
An 80-year-old Griffith resident has been issued a court attendence notice for driving with a suspended license.
At about 8pm on Wednesday, April 28, police were parked on Banna Avenue when they identified the driver of a blue Hoden rodeo.
Police followed the male driver for a short distance before pulling him over.
When asked to show his drivers license, the man allegedly said he could not as it was suspended.
Police conducted further enquiries and found that the mans license was currently suspended due to a medical condition and he is required to pass a medical before being able to get his license back.
The driver was aware of the status of his license but allegedly told police he "wanted to get some groceries".
He has been issued a court attendance notice for driving while suspended.
