Playing up at Robe

NOT everyone has been having innocent fun during the huge annual influx of summer visitors to Robe this year.

An unusually high number of six people have been reported for drink driving in the three days since New Year's Eve.

In the latest offences, two drivers were caught drink driving in two separate incidents at Robe on Thursday night.

Just before 9pm, police were patrolling a caravan park on Main Rd, Robe when they saw a car being driven with two children sitting on the bonnet. The 32-year-old Victorian driver was stopped and returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.08.

He was issued with an immediate loss of licence for six months and will be summonsed to appear in the Millicent Magistrates Court later.

At about 11.15pm, police pulled over a car for a random driver test on Tobruk Rd, Robe. The driver, a 47-year-old Victorian woman, recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.059 and was issued with an expiation notice.

Six people have been detected drink driving at Robe since New Year's Eve.

Police urge holiday makers to behave responsibly while enjoying their time on the Limestone Coast. No tolerance will be shown for those who choose to drink and drive.

- The behaviour of revellers on Robe's popular Long Beach on New Year's Eve has also annoyed locals and authorities.

Robe District Council reportedly removed two trucks worth of rubbish, cans and bottles after the festivities. More details to come.
