IN COURT: North Burnett drink, drug drivers named and shamed

THE Central and North Burnett Times and the Queensland Police Service will be joining forces to tackle the widespread problem of drink or drug driving.

We have devised a list of the drink or drug-drivers that have gone through Gayndah Magistrates Court. 

We hope this list will endeavour to act as a deterrent for those putting others at risk by drink or drug-driving in our region.
