Drink-driv­ing vexes

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Queen­stown po­lice are call­ing on mates and com­mu­nity mem­bers to curb a spate of high level drunk driv­ers on the roads as win­ter kicks in.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Chris Black­ford said mul­ti­ple court ap­pear­ances in the past week by drink driv­ers who had recorded breath al­co­hol read­ings in ex­cess of 900 or 1000mcg, when the le­gal limit is 400mcg, were dis­turb­ing.

‘‘. . . these people are grossly in­tox­i­cated and it’s in ev­ery­one’s best in­ter­ests to get them off the road.’’
