Guest worker gets one year off the road

A guest worker who failed to provide a breath sample to Police has been banned from the roads for a year.

Ashish Rozario, 32, originally from Bangladesh, was arrested on November 28 after officers saw him driving erratically along South Road, Paget, at about 11.45pm.

According to prosecutor Carrington Mahoney, Police were on duty near the Ice Queen restaurant when they saw a motorcycle being ridden east with Rozario and a pillion passenger.

The officers noted the vehicle was swerving from side to side and had failed to stop before turning on to The Lane. The officers then activated their roof lights, but Rozario continued as far as East Broadway before pulling over.

Asked if he had been drinking, Rozario said that he had had two whiskeys. He was subsequently arrested.

While the defendant agreed to provide a sample of breath, once in the alco-analyser room he failed to provide adequate samples.

Appearing in Magistrates' Court this morning, the restaurant worker pleaded guilty to the offence. Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined him $1,200 and disqualified him from driving all vehicles for one year.
