FOUR men in their 30s were all caught allegedly drink driving at Moranbah within a 24-hour period.
It was a busy weekend for Moranbah police who intercepted the four drivers on May 23 and 24.
A 39-year-old Moranbah man was intercepted by police at Bacon Lane about 10pm on May 23.
The man allegedly provided a BAC of 0.062 per cent at Moranbah Police Station.

After providing a positive RBT, he was taken to the Breath Analysing Section at Moranbah Police Station where the man allegedly provided a positive reading of 0.122 per cent BAC.
Both men are expected to appear at Moranbah Magistrates Court on August 20 in relation to the drink driving offences and their licences were immediately suspended.
At 7.05pm on May 24, police intercepted a car on Connor Drive, Moranbah.
A 36-year-old Moranbah man provided a positive RBT and later recorded a BAC of 0.144 per cent.
He will appear in the Moranbah Magistrates Court on July 30 and his licence was suspended until court.
Police intercepted a 33-year-old Moranbah man driving on Turner Court at 9.10pm on May 24.
The man allegedly provided a positive reading during an RBT and recorded 0.063 per cent BAC when taken to the police station.
The man will appear at Moranbah Magistrates Court on August 20 and his licence was suspended for 24 hours.
Senior Sergeant Adam Dyer said driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not worth the risk.
"It can lead to tragic consequences, serious charges and the immediate suspension of your drivers licence," he said.
"Moranbah Police maintain a high visibility presence on the roads in and around Moranbah, placing a particular emphasis on tackling the fatal five and detecting those whose driving behaviour places other road users at risk.
"While it is disappointing that drivers take the risk of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the fact that they are intercepted and taken off the roads show the proactive response police take to keeping the roads around Moranbah safe."
