‘Trifecta’ drive was a bad bet

By Casey Neill

POLICE allege an Officer driver was going for a trifecta in Keysborough.
They said the 34-year-old driver was detected speeding, drug and drink driving as part of Operation Furlong, about 5.30pm on Monday 31 December.
State Highway Patrol central officers pulled over a car after allegedly clocking it travelling at 111km/h in an 80km/h zone on Greens Road.
They allege the driver returned a reading of .111 on a breath test and tested positive to ice.
Police impounded the man’s vehicle for 30 days and immediately suspended his licence.
He is expected to be charged on summons with a range of traffic offences.
Operation Furlong is a state-wide road policing operation focussing on drink and drug driving, speed, distraction, fatigue and seatbelts from Friday 28 October to Tuesday 1 November.
