Police charge 47 people with drink-driving in one month

POLICE have charged 47 people on the Fraser Coast with drink-driving in the past month.

Of those charged, 10 were more than three times over the legal limit, a Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said.

"What elese do we have to say or do in order for motorists to understand that you don't drink and drive?" she said.

Drink driving is considered of the five causes of deadly traffic crashes in the Queensland Police Fatal Five campaign.
