Learner driver, supervisor both charged with drink driving

A LEARNER driver and his driving supervisor have each been charged with drink driving after they both allegedly failed roadside breath tests when pulled over in Sydney’s southwest.

Highway Patrol officers stopped the pair’s Ford Territory for a random breath test on Blaxland Road at Blair Athol about 10pm last night.

Both the driver, a 34-year-old man on his L-plates, and his supervisor, a 31-year-old woman, allegedly returned positive roadside breath tests.


In a statement, a NSW Police spokesperson said the man allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.027, while the woman blew 0.110.

The couple will both appear in Campbelltown Local Court next month, charged with drink driving.
