Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command have spent another weekend dealing with the fallout from alcohol-related crime in Byron Bay.

Police detected 16 drink-driving offences between Thursday to Sunday with four charges laid for low-range drink driving, nine charges for mid-range, and one charge for high-range.

A 46-year-old Byron Bay woman was charged twice within a few hours after allegedly returning to her vehicle and continuing to drive.

A 29-year-old Queensland man was charged with high-range drink driving returning a reading of 0.168.

Tweed/Byron Crime Manager, Detective Acting Inspector Saul Wiseman, said that people who choose to drink and drive, placed themselves and the public in considerable danger.
