Shadow Attorney-General Tim Smith has resigned because he was caught driving two times over the legal limit – after crashing into another car and a fence.

The Liberal MP announced on Sunday that he left his senior post with the Victorian state opposition because he made a ‘serious error in judgement’. 

‘After dinner with friends I believed I was under the legal limit to drive home,’ the member for Kew said in a statement.

‘This was not the case.

‘I was breath-tested and returned a positive reading.’ 

According to Victorian police, Mr Smith’s vehicle collided with another before smashing into a fence on Power Street in Hawthorn, Melbourne’s inner east, at about 8.55pm on Saturday.

The 38-year-old was taken to the police station where he blew a 0.131 alcohol reading – two times higher than the legal limit.

No one was injured, but the Shadow Attorney-General was fined and had his licence suspended for 12 months.
