P-Plater off road for three months

THREE cans of mid-strength beer were three too many for a provisional licence holder who was pulled over for a random breath test.

Sam Jacob Byrne pleaded guilty to driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.065% at Goodna on May 3 this year.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard Byrne was the sole occupant of a Subaru Liberty when he was pulled over on Smiths Rd about 4.40pm.

Magistrate Donna MacCallum ordered Byrne off the road for three months, also issuing him with a fine of $200.
