A MAN will face court after he was allegedly caught behind the wheel and over the limit.

A 61-year-old man was stopped on Lorne Street in Lake Cargelligo at 5.45pm on Saturday by officers attached to the Central West Police District.

When the man returned a positive roadside breath test, he was taken to Lake Cargelligo Police Station where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.155.

He is due to appear in Lake Cargelligo Local Court in August.

NSW Police Western Region Traffic Tactician Inspector Ben Macfarlane said your choice to drink and drink puts everyone on the road at risk.

"We are out in force and will continue to target drink driving offences throughout Western Region." he said.

"If you drink and drive, expect to be caught and have your licence suspended immediately," he said.
