A Melbourne driver has blown a near-Australian record for drink driving.
The man was involved in a collision in Sunshine - and when tested, he blew an alcohol reading of 0.461.
The 46-year old had his licence immediately revoked following the reading 9 times over the limit.
Last January, a Gold Coast woman was caught driving with a reading of 0.480; which is believed to be an Australian record.
Professor Jake Najman of the University of Queensland’s Alcohol and Drug Research and Education Centre said at the time that a reading that high is simply ridiculous.
“You’re reaching the point of being comatose at 0.3 so by 0.4 you should be out of it completely, if not close to dead.’’
The Melbourne man will appear in magistrates' court on April 3, 2017.
