A man has been charged after allegedly being caught driving six times the legal limit in Sydney’s southwest yesterday.
About 8.35pm on Friday 18 March 2022, police were called to Barry Road, Chipping Norton, following reports a black Range Rover was driving in a dangerous manner.
Police were told the Range Rover was travelling on the wrong side of a road, causing other cars to take action to avoid a collision.
The Range Rover pulled to the side of the road and a passer-by parked their vehicle next to the car and contacted police.
Officers attached to Liverpool City Police Area Command attended and subjected the driver – a 63-year-old man – to a roadside breath test that returned a positive result.
The man was arrested and taken to Liverpool Police Station where a subsequent breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.305 – more than six times the legal limit.
The Chipping Norton man was charged with high-range PCA and not drive on far left side of road-motor vehicle.
He was granted conditional bail to appear in Liverpool Local Court on Wednesday 23 March 2022.
The man’s licence was also suspended.
