Alleged high-range driver crashes into Narooma house

A man has been charged with high-range drink-driving after police say he crashed into a house in Narooma last week.

Police said the 48-year-old man crashed into the house just before 6pm on Friday, November 2.

He allegedly returned a positive roadside breath test and was taken to Narooma Police Station where he blew more than four times the legal blood alcohol limit.

His driver’s licence was suspended.

He is expected to face Narooma Local Court on November 15, 2018.

NSW Police said more than 130 drivers were charged with drink driving during a three-day operation targeting alcohol-impaired motorists.

Operation Drink Drive 2 began on Friday, November 2, and will finish just before midnight on Sunday, November 4.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Acting Assistant Comissioner Julie Middlemiss said alcohol impaired your ability to control a vehicle and put you more at risk of being involved in a crash. 

“It is profoundly disappointing to see some drivers making some seriously bad decisions that not only put themselves at risk but every other road user around them,” Acting Assistant Commissioner Middlemiss said. 

“Even though the official state wide operation ends tonight, drivers right across NSW can expect to see further high-profile random breath testing operations conducted under the enhanced enforcement funding program.”
