A LOCAL driving blitz targeting regional road users and dangerous driver behaviours saw five drivers charged with drink-driving over the weekend.
The operation, Operation Chrome 2, saw officers out in force conducting random breath and drug testing, specifically targeting remote areas and back roads.
General traffic compliance including speeding, using mobile phones, not wearing seatbelts, and other dangerous behaviours were also targeted with the aim of stemming the already high road toll.
A 22-year-old woman was caught driving at three times the legal limit on Sunday after being stopped for a random breath test in Banna Avenue.
Another two women, both caught in the Griffith area, were charged with low-range drink driving on Saturday.
A Darlington Point woman was charged with high-range drink driving and had her licence suspended after she was caught driving with a PCA of 0.157 on Saturday.
A 43-year-old West Wyalong women was charged with low-range drink driving after being stopped for a random breath test and returning a result of 0.06 on Friday.
All drivers charged will face court over their matters.
