Recidivist Drink Drivers Caught Again


Another drink driving crackdown in South Auckland over the weekend so piles of people caught once again -many of them recidivist drink drivers.

Police stopped more than 18,000 drivers at nine random check points on Friday and Saturday night during a drink-driving blitz in Counties Manukau.

110 people will be summoned to court on drink driving related charges.
Police also suspended 45 driver licences and impounded 16 vehicles because the drivers were disqualified.
