DRUNK DRIVERS NABBED
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.
