A Belconnen driver recorded a near-fatal level of alcohol in his system after being stopped early Saturday morning.

At around 2 a.m. on Saturday (June 1, 2024) in Strathnairn, general duty officers from Belconnen saw a Toyota Corolla driving erratically.

The car was stopped and the 36-year-old driver was given a breathalyzer test, recording one of the highest readings seen in the ACT of 0.443.

He was given a 90-day notice of immediate suspension and will be summoned to appear in court at a later date.

ACT Policing is reminding all drivers that drink driving is one of the “five deadly causes” of death on our roads. If you’re going to drink, don’t drive.
