Driv­ers caught in po­lice sting

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

Port and South Hed­land po­lice have is­sued a stern warn­ing to driv­ers af­ter an in­crease in drink-driv­ing of­fences.

Po­lice have warned they will be on high alert, tar­get­ing al­co­hol-re­lated is­sues and help­ing min­imise com­mu­nity harm.

As a re­sult of an ac­tion plan into ad­dress­ing drink-driv­ing, ex­tra pa­trols were out in force over a week­long pe­riod this month.

The op­er­a­tion re­sulted in three driv­ers charged with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence, four driv­ers caught with a blood al­co­hol con­tent of 0.08, and two driv­ers caught driv­ing with a blood al­co­hol in ex­cess of 0.05.

Po­lice say in­creased pa­trols will be on­go­ing in a bid to re­duce harm.
