A woman was discovered twice by police for driving under the influence of methamphetamine in just six hours.
On Saturday, a 36-year-old woman from Cootamundra was allegedly detected driving under the influence of methamphetamine twice.
She was issued a court attendance notice to attend Cootamundra Local Court on January 6. During the blitz on bad behaviour on the roads, the Riverina Police District arrested eight people and laid six charges, three people were caught drink driving, and two were found in possession of prohibited drugs.
In two days, officers conducted more than 1700 breath tests, 58 random drug tests and searched 11 people.
Altogether, 53 traffic infringement notices were issued for a range of offences, including speeding and mobile phone use.
Police were disappointed people continue to get behind the wheel while impaired by alcohol or illicit drugs.
