Man’s licence suspended after caught drink driving

POLICE have warned those who enjoy a drink this festive season to be chauffeured by taxi or friends.

The advice follows on from the 24 hour suspension of a 29-year-old man's licence on Christmas Eve.

The man was intercepted along Pt Vernon's Eli Creek Rd at about 10.20pm where a blood alcohol reading of 0.060% was recorded.

He will appear before a Magistrate's Court in the New Year.
