A 40-year-old learner has allegedly been caught drink driving twice within four hours – and in two regional NSW towns.
The woman was stopped by highway patrol officers, who say they detected her Toyota Tarago speeding over the 50km/h limit in Temora at about 12.45am on Saturday.
Despite being unaccompanied, checks revealed she was a learner driver, and she also returned a positive initial breath test.
Arrested and taken to Temora Police Station, she recorded a secondary reading of 0.139.
The woman’s licence was suspended and she was handed a court notice for a range of driving offences.
Police then noticed the same Toyota Tarago crashed an hour away on the Olympic Highway at Wagga Wagga at about 4.15am.
The L-plater was spoken to again and later allegedly returned a secondary breath test reading of 0.135 at Wagga Wagga Police Station.
She was issued a second court notice for mid-range drink driving and driving on a suspended licence.
The woman is scheduled to face Wagga Wagga Local Court in November.
