A truck driver will face court after testing positive to alcohol on the Princes Highway in New South Wales yesterday.

The 43-year-old was driving a prime mover loaded with logs at East Lynne when he was stopped by police at 7.30am.

Police found the timber logs not restrained properly. 

The man was arrested and had his driver’s licence suspended after testing positive to a roadside breath test.

He was taken to Bateman’s Bay police station where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.119.

He will face court next month.

Double demerit points will be in place from today to January 1 for speeding and seatbelt offences during the annual traffic enforcement campaign in NSW, Operation Safe Arrival.
