Driving disqualified leads to 28 month suspension

A WOMAN who racked up three drug driving offences and was caught driving disqualified has been taken off the road.

Kim Twiner pleaded guilty in Dalby Magistrates Court on Tuesday to seven charges, five of them drug-related.

The court heard Twiner was caught behind the wheel with meth in her system on May 28 in Dalby, on June 22 in Toowoomba and on July 14 in Dalby.

The most serious of these offences was the last, as she had had her licence suspended after being caught in Toowoomba two weeks earlier.

Police prosecution told the court Twiner had meth and drug utensils when she was caught in Toowoomba.

Twiner was also charged for failing to appear at Dalby Magistrates Court on August 7.

Magistrate Robbie Davies said probation would be the best way to address Twiner's problems.

He ordered Twiner to serve 12 months' probation and fined her $600.

Twiner was disqualified from driving for 24 months for driving while on a suspended licence and an additional four months for the drug driving offence.
