Three Springs police charged three people with alleged drink-driving offences in as many days earlier this week.

A Perth man aged in his 30s allegedly blew 0.118 – more than twice the legal limit – when he was stopped on Midlands Road late last Saturday night.

At about 11.05pm the following evening, a North Midlands woman aged in her 20s allegedly blew 0.129 – also more than double the limit – when she was stopped on Bowman Street in Carnamah.

Then on Monday, a Geraldton man aged in his 30s allegedly blew 0.085 when he was stopped on Allanooka Springs Road about 4.30pm.

The Perth man and the North Midlands woman both had their licences immediately disqualified and were charged with high-range drink-driving.

They will face Three Springs Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

Police said it had not yet been determined whether the Geraldton man would receive an infringement or be summonsed to appear in court.

The charges prompted Three Springs police to post this warning to Twitter: “We have caught yet another drink driver! Third day in a row! Just over? Just don't drive.”
