Driving after swizzle leads to road ban
A man who admitted a Good Friday drink driving charge was yesterday fined $1,800 and banned from driving for 18 months. Magistrates’ Court heard Nanud Lino, 34, was arrested after he was seen to drive at high speed along Middle Road in Warwick.
Prosecutors said he showed “no care or concern” for the large number of pedestrians and other road users on the roads due to the March 30 holiday.
Lino told officers: “I was at my friend’s house and had about five rum swizzles.”
A later breath test showed Lino had 181 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood — more than double the legal limit of 80mg/100ml.
Lino told magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo: “I’m sorry I was in that state. I just got a little carried away. I swear it will not happen again.”
