Casey Highway Patrol gets ’em

Police stopped drivers who attempted to turn before reaching the bus.

Casey Highway Patrol officers nabbed six drivers for various traffic offences as part of a local operation targeting people attempting to avoid a random breath test bus in Hampton Park.

On Friday 23 July, officers pulled over vehicles seen to be turning off the road before the bus.

Among the drivers stopped was an unlicensed 25-year-old Heatherton man who recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.131.

A 56-year-old Hampton Park man was also found to be driving whilst his licence was suspended.

They will both face court at a later date.

A 20-year-old Berwick man was issued an infringement notice for failing to display P plates and a 22-year-old Dandenong North woman was issued an infringement notice for failure to carry a learner’s permit, failure to display L plates and failure to have an experienced driver.
