Drink and alcohol testing in Shoalhaven

“The high-visibility operation was enforced across Nowra and Bay and Basin between Friday, January 29 and Sunday, January 31, targeting criminal activity and poor driver behaviour on roads. Nowra Traffic and Highway Patrol and the Proactive Crime Unit conducted the operation that focused on speeding, drink and drug-driving, not wearing seatbelts, using a mobile phone behind the wheel and fatigue,” the article described.

Over 180 random breath tests were conducted with one woman found with high range drink driving while suspended.

A further 79 random drug tests were conducted with 15 people returning a positive indication for the presence of a prohibited drug.
