A Richmond man was arrested and his car impounded after he refused a police breath test on Saturday morning.

Patrolling police stopped the 2022 Nissan Patrol on Stanley St at about 9am after they observed it being driven erratically in Lennox St.

The driver was arrested after he refused a preliminary breath test and also refused to identify himself.

Police said after he was identified the 45-year-old was found to be unlicensed.

His car was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $873.

He will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date for driving and other offences.

Police are targeting speed, distraction, fatigue and impaired driving in high-risk areas throughout metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
