The son of NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has been charged with drink driving while unlicensed after failing a breath test at Waterfall on the weekend.

Jacob Fuller, 20, was behind the wheel of a vehicle that "stopped short" of an RBT police were conducting at Princes Highway around 3am on Sunday morning, police say.

He allegedly blew .031 - which is an offence because of the zero alcohol limit on P-plate drivers.

The reading is the equivalent to having one beer.

"After returning a positive roadside reading, the driver was subject to a breath analysis, which allegedly returned a reading of 0.031," police said in a statement released today.

''Subsequent checks of the man's licence revealed it was currently suspended."

Jacob Fuller was issued a future court attendance notice to appear at Sutherland Local Court on October 17.

He was one of 260 motorists arrested over the weekend as part of a police blitz on drink driving.

Operation Nabbed, a high-visibility traffic operation, ran on Friday and Saturday, where officers from Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, supported by General Duties police, conducted random and stationary breath tests on the M2, M4, M5, M7, M1 and Princes Highway between 9pm and 4am.

Police conducted more than 75,000 breath tests over the two-day operation. As a result:

  • Drink driving charges laid - 260
  • Traffic charges - 119
  • Traffic Infringement Notices Issued - 1928

"We see time and time again that driving under the influence impairs your decisions," Traffic and Highway Patrol boss Superintendent Greg Rolph said.

"Don't add to our road toll by putting yourself or another innocent party at risk because of a momentary lapse in the decision-making process."

The NSW Police Commissioner is currently in Israel.
