Woman was in no state to supervise learner driver
MORE than twice the legal blood alcohol limit, Melissa Jean Shadbolt was in no state to direct a learner driver on November 19.
But after two glasses of wine and a beer earlier that night that's exactly what the Rockhampton woman did.
The Rockhampton Magistrates Court heard Shadbolt was caught with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.103 travelling in the front passenger seat with a learner behind the wheel on Denham St, Allenstown at 12.05am.
Supervisors must have a 0.00 BAC when travelling with a learner driver, but Shadbolt's reading placed her in the middle alcohol limit.
On Monday, Shadbolt was fined $500 deferred to SPER, disqualified from driving for three months and a conviction recorded.
