ACT Policing will summons a 32-year-old Palmerston woman after being caught for drink driving in Palmerston yesterday (Sunday, 29 May 2016).
A number of reports were received by ACT Policing about the erratic driving of a silver coloured Mazda sedan in both Higgins and Palmerston.
About 1.15pm ACT Policing Gungahlin Patrol members located the vehicle on Redcliffe Street in Palmerston, where the driver undertook a breath screening test which proved positive.
The woman was taken into custody and conveyed to Gungahlin Police Station where further breath analysis was conducted, resulting in a BAC reading of 0.324.
The woman will face the ACT Magistrate’s Court at a later date and was issued with an Immediate Suspension Notice.
