A DRUNK driver has had his licence immediately suspended after recording a blood alcohol concentration of more than three and a half times the legal limit.
The 46-year-old driver was travelling home from Laternenfest in Tarrington with three children in the car, when he was pulled over and breath tested by Hamilton Hwy Patrol.
Hamilton’s Highway Patrol Sergeant Scott Williams said he was “dumbfounded and angry” that someone would choose to get behind the wheel in that state.
With fatal collisions at Penshurst over the past 13 months ago and the death of a nine-year-old girl at Muntham last week, all believed to be without the addition of alcohol.
Sgt Williams could not believe someone would take such a risk to drink-drive themselves, let alone with three children in the car.
