Browns Plains Police stop third school zone drink driver

On Tuesday February 16, whilst taking part in Operation Collude 8, Browns Plains Police have again intercepted a third drink driver near a school zone whilst conducting random breath testing.

It will be alleged at about 3.40pm a 35-year-old man from Regents Park was intercepted on Mt Lindesay Highway Service Road, Park Ridge whilst he was on his way back from collecting his children from school pick-up. Travelling with the man when intercepted by police were his two children. After providing a positive roadside breath test, the man was transported to Browns Plains Police Station for further testing where it will be further alleged her final breath test gave a reading of 0.071%.

He will appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on 16 March 2016.

Another two drivers were also issued traffic infringement notices near Yugumbir State School for illegal parking.

Browns Plains Police Station, Officer in Charge, Senior Sergeant Michael Leafe is amazed that people are still risking driving after consuming liquor.

“We are targeting school zones specifically for drink drivers,” Senior Sergeant Leafe said.

“If you are going to pick up or drop off your kids from school, be prepared to be breath tested.

“Browns Plains Police will continue to remain vigilant and target these traffic criminals for the protection of our community.”
