Passengers force driver to pull over on M1 Motorway at Mooney Mooney before he allegedly blows 0.105

PASSENGERS returning from a Hunter Valley day tour have stopped their bus driver on the M1 Motorway before he allegedly registered a blood alcohol reading of 0.105.

The coach, which had been chartered by a western Sydney church group, was travelling along the motorway near Mooney Mooney about 7pm on Saturday when passengers became concerned about the driver being drunk.

They forced the 43-year-old to stop before ringing police, who arrived and submitted the man to a breath test.

He was issued a notice for mid-range PCA and had his driver’s licence suspended.

He will face Gosford Local Court on November 16.
