A MAN blew more than four times the legal limit when he was pulled over for a random breath test at Narrandera on Friday night.
Griffith police observed a blue Subaru Impreza stop short of the random breath test stationary site on the Newell Highway at 8.30pm.
The driver, a 33-year-old Woy Woy man, returned a positive reading, was arrested and taken to Narrandera police station.
He recorded an alleged blood-alcohol reading of .267.
The man was charged with high-range drink-driving and will appear at Narrandera Local Court on Friday, April 24.
The incident was detected on day two of Operation Drink Drive, which ran from Thursday to Saturday, blitzing drink-driving, speeding and seatbelts.
Out of nearly 70,000 breath tests during day two of the operation, only 32 drivers were caught over the limit, which is down from 155 during the same drink-driving enforcement operation in 2014.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, says that despite the reduction in drink-driving and major crashes, there are still too many people breaking the law.
"Traffic and Highway Patrol officers and local police have been conducting thousands of random breath tests across the state," he said.
"It is encouraging to see a decline in the number of people arrested for drink driving, however, we continue to see people breaking the law.
"Officers are committed to driving down the road toll in 2015 and will be out in force to ensure motorists don't take unnecessary risks."
