A bit of teamwork may have prevented one alleged drunk driver ending up worse off in Inglewood yesterday.
Three drivers managed to surround the 43-year-old male, bring his car to a stop and remove the keys from the ignition before police arrived at the scene.
Inglewood Constable Darren Hayes said witnesses saw the man driving erratically, speeding up and slowing down, and driving on the wrong side of the road on SH3A between Waitara and Inglewood.
"They [the witnesses] haven't done anything crazy or outlandish. They pulled alongside him, blocked him off, stopped and pulled his keys out," he said.
