Video: Four charged for drink driving

FOUR people were charged with drink driving and 10 traffic infringement notices were issued in a two-night police operation in Logan.

As part an ongoing operation aimed at unsafe driving behaviour, police ran the roadblock last weekend.

Five people have been killed on Logan roads in 2021 - five more than the same time last year. Earlier this month Queensland Police Service launched Operation Tango Anaconda to curb drug driving in the state.

Logan police conducted 913 random breath tests, with four motorists charged for drink driving offences.

Police also issued 10 traffic infringement notices for offences including driving a defective vehicle, driving with ground clearance less than allowed and modifying vehicle silencing devices.

Officers patrolling the Pacific Motorway in Daisy Hill detected a motorist allegedly travelling at 128km/h in a 100km/h zone.

The 36-year-old man was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver's license and is due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court later this month.

A 27-year-old Underwood woman was charged with driving while unlicensed and was issued a notice to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court.

Sergeant Jason Robertson said police would continue to have a significant presence on Logan roads.

"We've had a number of fatalities on our local roads already his year, and we urge motorists to think about the potential consequences that their actions may have if they are not full focussed on driving safely," he said.

Operation Tango Anaconda runs until the end of June, and will focus on high visibility random drug testing aimed at deterring drug driving offences and preventing serious and fatal crashes that occur as a result.
