Local police are currently targeting dangerous drivers, as Operation Easter 2022 enters day four.
Of note, officers arrested a 53-year-old man when he failed to stop after a car crash on Allendale Street at Beresfield just before 10pm on Friday.
He returned a positive roadside breath test and was taken to Maitland Police Station where he was subjected to a subsequent test, where he returned an alleged reading of 0.148, almost three times the legal limit.
He has been charged with mid-range PCA, licence suspended and will appear before Maitland Local Court on May 11, 2022.
Meanwhile, Port Stephens Hunter Police set up a roadside breath test operation on the New England Highway at Maitland on Saturday night and are happy to report from over 150 breath tests, no positives were detected.
