NAMED: 23 North Burnett drug and drink drivers

THE Central and North Burnett Times and the Queensland Police Service will be joining forces to tackle the widespread problem of drink and drug-driving.

We have devised a list of the drink and drug-drivers that have gone through Gayndah Magistrates Court in the past 12 months.

This monthly list will endeavour to act as a deterrent for those putting others at risk by drink and drug-driving in our region.
