Alarming rise of female drink drivers
Neil Mitchell is alarmed at the recent spate of female drink drivers on Victorian roads.
In the past seven days, a Narre Warren woman blew .304 in a black BMW and yesterday a 55-year Mooroolbark woman registered .285 after crashing her car into a property, narrowly missing a young child playing on a trampoline.
Speaking with Acting Assistant Commissioner for Traffic Neville Taylor, Neil Mitchell asked whether women are suddenly taking more risks with alcohol and driving.
The Traffic cop said the unfortunate events of the past week are most likely a one-off.
"I don't see anything that this is trend over time. However, it is important we make these incidences available to the public," Mr. Taylor said.
"We have breath tested 520,000 drivers since September, so if you plan to use the roads over the holiday period, expect to be breath tested."
whats wrong with people that they have to wipe themselves out - are they that depressed that they cant have a good time without being drunk. A sad world.brad Tuesday 4 December, 2012 - 3:53 PM
