Drink-driver didn't fit interlock because it was too pricey

AFTER being caught drink driving, Dylan John Stephens was ordered to fit an interlock device to his car.

The 22-year-old P-plater didn't, because it was too expensive - but he continued to drive.

He was caught three times between December 18, 2013 and February 16 this year by police after driving a car without an interlock device.

He pleaded guilty in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Tuesday to the three interlock charges and not displaying P-plates.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell fined Stephens $2500 and disqualified him from driving for 15 months for the three offences.
