ACT Policing has charged a 23-year-old woman with drink driving and driving unaccompanied, following a collision in Casey on Sunday, 10 June 2018.

About 1.20am, police attended a report of a collision involving a vehicle and the front steps and mailbox of a residence on Overall Avenue, Casey.

The driver returned a positive road side breath test. She was taken to Gungahlin Police Station for breath analysis and returned a result of 0.147 (the legal limit for full licence holders is 0.05).

The unaccompanied driver held a learner licence, which is subject to zero blood-alcohol-content (0.00) when behind the wheel.

The woman was charged with drink driving and driving unaccompanied as a learner driver. She will be summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

All learner and provisional drivers must have a zero blood-alcohol-content when behind the wheel, and learner drivers must be accompanied by a full licence holder in the front passenger seat.
