NSW Police statistics listed Mudgee as seventh in the state during the last financial year.
Mudgee Local Area Command has described the situation as ‘a real concern’ after nine drivers were arrests over the weekend for alcohol and drug offences.
“Drivers just don’t seem to understand their actions can have serious consequences not just for themselves but for other families.”
Despite earlier messages and warnings about being caught, over the weekend five people were detected driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
Police also detected four drivers who returned positive detection to driving a vehicle with an illicit drug present in their blood.
Mudgee LAC has appealed for everyone to ”regard this is a problem and do their bit to prevent these people getting behind the wheel”.
“Please ensure everyone has a Plan B”.
