A LOCAL police sergeant has been left “disgusted” over the number of drink and drug drivers caught on Mildura roads at the weekend – with four drink drivers and two drug drivers nabbed on Friday night alone. 

In total, five drug drivers and four drink drivers were caught by Mildura police at the weekend, including a learner driver in his 40s who blew 0.110 in a preliminary blood/alcohol reading and was behind the wheel without a supervised driver.

The horror weekend has prompted Mildura police to issue an urgent warning for drivers to think before they get behind the wheel before another life is lost on local roads.
