CHB mo­torists were among 27 drink driv­ers nabbed by Hawke’s Bay po­lice dur­ing a 72-hour blitz ear­lier this month.

Po­lice said they were “hugely dis­ap­pointed” af­ter they caught 11 driv­ers with an alcohol level of more than 400mcg per litre of breath, who were due to ap­pear in court in Napier, Hast­ings and Waipuku­rau. The high­est read­ing was 984mcg. The 11 face dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion from driv­ing for at least six months, fines and pri­son in the most se­ri­ous cases.
