Point Lookout man caught drink driving during Covid compliance check. Police launch Queensland Road Safety Week.

A 57-year-old Point Lookout man was caught drink driving after being pulled over for a Covid compliance check during the south-east Queensland lockdown earlier this month.

Police allege the man blew .079 on East Coast Road on Friday, August 6 just after 7pm.

Checks also revealed his vehicle's registration and compulsory third party insurance had expired by more than 40 days.

He has been charged with drink driving and traffic offences, and will appear in Cleveland Magistrates Court later this month.

CHARGES: Police have nabbed two drivers for drink driving on North Stradbroke Island.

Earlier in the week, a 38-year-old Palm Beach man blew over the limit after being pulled over on Tramican Street at Point Lookout.

The man returned a reading of .056 at 5pm on Wednesday, August 4 and is due in court this month after being charged with drink driving.

Dunwich officers issued nine tickets for speeding in the past week. More than half were dished out for motorists travelling 20km/h over the limit.

A 26-year-old Belmont man recorded the highest speed, having been picked up travelling at 88km/h in a 60km/h zone along Main Beach.

Sergeant Darren Scanlan said the speeds were concerning and police would continue high visibility speed enforcement.

"I don't like issuing tickets, but some drivers just choose to willfully ignore the speed limits set to protect all road users," he said.

Assistant Commissioner Ben Marcus said too many drivers were taking risks.

It comes as the road toll nears 200 and police launch a series of safety videos during Queensland Road Safety Week.

"There have been 174 lives lost on Queensland roads so far this year, which is 19 more than the same time last year," Assistant Commissioner Marcus said.

"These videos are intentionally confronting but unfortunately, the scene depicted has been the reality for far too many Queenslanders."

Assistant Comissioner Marcus said police were doing everything possible to prevent road deaths but motorists needed to play their part.

"Every single driver has the opportunity to make better decisions on the road that will result in them avoiding tragic consequences," he said.
