Police Lurk Outside Fast-Food Joints To Catch Drivers With Munchies

So after a drink, stay on the roads and out of drive-ins

|

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.
