Seven offences; some never learn

A MAN has been charged with his seventh drink driving offence in 14 years, after he returned a high-range reading in Coffs Harbour.

Police say the 36-year-old was pulled over after he ran a red light in a BMW sedan at the Pacific Highway intersection with Park Beach Rd on Saturday at 1.15am.

Checks with the Roads and Traffic Authority found that his driver’s licence was disqualified.

He was breath-tested at the scene and returned a positive reading.

The man was arrested and conveyed to the Coffs Harbour Police Station.

He returned a high-range reading of 0.188 when breath analysed.

The man will appear in the Coffs Harbour Local Court next month charged with drink driving and traffic offences.
