Driver caught nearly double legal limit learns his lesson
A MAN caught driving almost double to the legal alcohol limit has said he has learned his lesson.
John Thomas Brett O'Connor pleaded guilty in Maryborough Magistrates Court on Wednesday to drink driving.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Kathryn Stagoll said O'Connor was found during a random breath test with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.092% while driving on Gympie Rd, Tinana on October 3.
O'Connor, who represented himself in court, was remorseful for his actions.
"It was an act of foolishness on my behalf which I am going to seriously regret," he said.
Magistrate Dean Wilkinson fined O'Connor $400 and disqualified him from driving for three months.
