Man charged with drink driving after colliding with a parked car

A 31-year-old man from NSW will face the ACT Magistrates Court today after being caught drink driving following a collision with a parked car. 

About 3.20pm on Friday, 16 February 2024, it is alleged a brown Volkswagen Multivan being driven by the 31-year-old man collided with a white Nissan Navara that was stationary at the intersection of Northbourne Avenue and Antill Street, Dickson. 

Following the collision, the man failed to stop to exchange details with the driver of the Nissan Navara. 

A short time later, the man was observed driving erratically throughout Dickson and allegedly narrowly avoided a head on collision with another vehicle. 

About 4.24pm, police received reports that the Volkswagen Multivan had collided with a parked car on Binara Street, City. 

The man was subject to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result. He was then taken to City Police Station, where he returned a breath analysis of 0.148, close to three times the legal limit. 

The man was subsequently charged with driving under the influence of liquor, failing to exchange details with the other driver, and driving a motor vehicle with alcohol in his breath.
