Handfull for Greensborough police as driver blows 0.07 with 18 men on board


Greensborough Highway Patrol had their hands full tonight in Montmorency after pulling over a five seater ute.

The Ford F350 was observed on Para Road about 7.45pm with a few people in the rear tray of the ute.

The vehicle was intercepted on Hoban Avenue and the occupants started to pile out.

In total 18 males were in the ute and the driver returned an evidentiary breath test of 0.071.

The vehicle has been impounded and the driver, a 46-year-old Montmorency man, will be charged on summons with drink driving and other driving related offences.

The intercept was part of the state-wide Operation Roadwise, which sees police out in force to target drink and drug driving, speed, distraction, fatigue and failure to wear restraints.

Operation Roadwise will run from 14 December to 6 January, and will focus on enforcement and improving driver behaviour.

Police will be out in force to target the five leading causes of death and serious injury on our roads – speed, impairment, distraction, not wearing seatbelts and fatigue.
