Police look for intoxicated drivers in Miramar, find none

News from NZ Police
Wellington Police are thanking responsible drivers following a traffic operation this evening.

Police conducted a check point in Broadway, Miramar, between 9.00pm and 10.15pm.

Out of the 200 drivers checked for alcohol no one was found to be over the drink drive limit.

“This is a great outcome,” said Senior Sergeant Dean Gorrie, Officer in Charge, Wellington & Kapiti Mana Road Policing Team. “It’s encouraging to see people plan ahead and not drive if they’re going out for a few drinks.

“Police are committed to reducing death and injury on our roads but we cannot do it alone, and this result shows that we have the support of the community.

“Our message to all road users is clear; don’t drive distracted, buckle up, watch your speed, and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”
