Two women, in separate incidents, have been reported drink driving in Port Pirie on Thursday night. 

At 8.45pm, police stopped a 26-year-old woman in a Mitsubishi SUV travelling along Three Chain Road, she was breath tested and allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.111. 

The Port Pirie woman had her vehicle impounded for 28 days and has been issued an instant six month loss of license. 

Later that night, at 10.15pm, a Ford Sedan was stopped on Fourth Street and the 31-year-old driver from Queensland was breath tested and allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.104. 

The woman was reported for drink driving, had her car impounded for 28 days and has been disqualified from driving for six months. 

Both women will be summonsed to appear in the Port Pirie Magistrates Court at a later date. 

Police remind the public that drink driving will not be tolerated as it is one of the fatal five factors that attribute to deaths on South Australian roads. 

If you plan to have a few drinks, organise a designated driver or arrange alternate transport.
