On Friday 9 October, Browns Plains Police have intercepted a 34 year old woman from Boronia Heights whilst conducting random breath testing in local school zones during school pick-up times. The woman recorded a positive roadside breath test and was transported to Browns Plains Police Station for further testing.
It will be alleged that the woman, who was attending a local school to collect her children, recorded a blood alcohol concentration of 0.147%, nearly three times the legal limit.
She will appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on 9 November. Due to the high reading, her driver licence has been suspended until she appears in court.
Browns Plains Police also issued a 28 year old Hillcrest woman with a traffic infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit in the reduced-speed school zones. The woman was also attending a local school to collect her children.
Reinforcing their commitment to making the community safer and reducing road trauma, Browns Plains Police will continue to conduct random breath testing and speed detection in reduced-speed school zones during school drop-off and pick-up times.
