Former Foreign Minister and Deputy Opposition Leader, Gareth Evans, was booked for exceeding Victoria’s drink driving laws last night.
Evans registered 0.074 when stopped in the Melbourne suburb of Kew. He was given an on-the-spot fine of $300 and had his licence automatically suspended for 6 months.
Evans is due to take up a new appointment as Chief Executive of the International Crisis Group early in the new year. Presumably, he will not need a driving licence in Brussels.
