The man was charged with mid-range drink driving and his licence was suspended.

He has been granted conditional bail, to appear at Dunedoo Local Court on Friday 8 April 2016.

  • Oh wow! Thankfully he didn’t have a bus full of kids, but how many times has he done this before? It’s probably alot more common than we think. Maybe all drivers should be tested before their shifts!!

  • For goodness sake. He has even less excuse than the average person.


    • Exactly, they know the rules, especially when driving buses. They should have to have 0 reading. They are driving a large vehicle with a large number of people and don’t have seatbelts either.
