DRIVERS suffering the midnight munchies have been busted in a cunning police operation designed to catch hungry drug and booze impaired drivers.
Operation McBusted nabbed 95 hungry drivers in the Elsternwick area as they left 24-hour fast food outlets and on nearby back streets last weekend.
Twenty-three drivers exceeded the legal blood alcohol limit, with a further five drivers testing positive for drugs.
State Highway Patrol Inspector David Griffin said the results were appalling and should send a strong message to motorists who thought they could avoid police by travelling home on the back roads after a night out.
