Two drivers have lost their licences and had their cars impounded after allegedly being drunk while behind the wheel on Fleurieu roads.

A 32-year-old Mitcham man was pulled over and breath tested on Alexandrina Road, Goolwa about 9pm on Saturday, May 16.

He allegedly recorded a positive result of 0.084, and as a result he lost his licence for six months and his car for 28 days.

The following night, police breath tested a local woman on North Terrace, Port Elliot, and received a positive reading of 0.083.

The 33-year-old immediately lost her licence and had her car impounded for 28 days.

Both drivers will face court at a later date.

In other driving offences, a 22-year-old was found to be driving with a suspended licence when she was pulled over on Milnes Road, Strathalbyn about 1am on Wednesday, May 13.

She was arrested and received bail, and will face Mount Barker Magistrates Court on June 12.

At 9.40pm on Sunday, May 17, a 37-year-old local man was stopped by Goolwa patrols on Gardiner Street.

Checks by police found he was disqualified from driving and he was reported for the offence.

He will face court at a later date.
