Two Port Pirie Locals Drink and Drug Driving


Two motorists were caught drink and drug driving last week within an hour of each other on Port Pirie roads.

A 49-year-old Port Pirie woman was issued with an instant six-month loss of licence after she blew 0.091, almost double the limit.

The other driver, a 51-year-old man also from Pirie, allegedly returned a positive result for methamphetamine.

Further checks revealed he had been disqualified from driving.

Both drivers will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date, the man may also face drug driving charges pending forensic analysis of his drug test.
