Wayward drivers caught



A P-PLATER will face court after a less-than-promising start to her day.

At 3am on Sunday, police claim they saw the southbound driver, 22, turn from Arrawarra Road onto the Pacific Highway and head from the southbound lane to the northbound lane.

Police allege they had to break harshly to avoid hitting her and that she was travelling at 125km/hour in a 100km/h zone and was swerving.

They stopped the woman, who had her young son in the front seat.

She was breath-tested and allegedly returned a reading of .140 in a subsequent breath analysis. Police confiscated her licence.

n A man, 25, who allegedly sped on the Pacific Highway will appear in court on a low-range drink-driving charge.

Police radar detected the Commodore driver travelling at 117km/hour in a 100km/h zone at Moonee at 8.15am on Sunday, police allege.

A subsequent breath analysis allegedly returned a reading of .070.

n A woman, 49, will appear in court for alleged low-range drink-driving in Orlando Street at 10.15pm on Sunday.

Police allegedly saw the woman's southbound Sigma swerve and they later breath-tested her.

She was arrested and taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where a breath analysis allegedly returned a reading of .070.

n A man, 42, who allegedly drove with a mid-range blood alcohol reading at Bellingen will appear in court.

Police claim the man did not operate his Toyota Corona's indicators in Wheatley Street at 6.30pm on Sunday.

They breath-tested him and took him to Bellingen Police Station where he allegedly returned a .095 reading. His licence was suspended.
