Police operation targets unlicenced drivers and unregistered vehicles


ACT Road Policing members conducted a targeted operation yesterday morning targeting unlicenced drivers and unregistered vehicles.  

The operation commenced about 8.00am yesterday (Friday, 23 December) on Barrenjoey Drive, adjacent to Lake Burley Griffin, and identified offences committed by four people.  

A 48-year-old man from Western Australia was arrested and charged with refusing to undergo a roadside drug screening, refusing to provide an oral fluid sample, driving while suspended, driving an unregistered vehicle, and driving an uninsured vehicle.  

A 47-year-old man from Queensland was also arrested and charged with refusing to undergo a roadside drug screening and refusing to provide an oral fluid sample.  

A 56-year-old woman from New South Wales was arrested and charged with driving while suspended, while a 47-year-old man from Victoria was issued with a court attendance notice for driving while suspended. 

All four will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date. 

Police would like to reiterate they will be out in force over the Christmas period targeting, among other things, drink and drug driving, and would like to remind drivers to ensure their licence, registration, and insurance details are current and up to date.
