Coffs drink driver arrested


A MAN, 29, will face court on charges of mid-range drink-driving and being a learner unaccompanied.

Police breath-tested the man after his car ran off the Pacific Highway and ended up in a ditch at Woolgoolga at 12.35am on Friday.

He was arrested after a positive breath test and taken to Woolgoolga Police Station, where a breath analysis returned a reading of .145.

MEANTIME the State Government is planning to reduce the punishment for low-range speeding offences, ditching the three demerit point penalty.

“Three points for exceeding the speed limit from zero to 15km/h will be reduced, and I'll be coming back with new proposals,” Roads Minister Michael Daley said.
