Around 100 drivers in Lincoln and Leeston were pulled over during mobile patrols at the weekend and only one was over the limit. The female driver, in her early 20s, recorded 600mcg/L on Saturday night in Lincoln, 350mcg/L over the limit of 250mcg/L. There have been 124 alcoholrelated car crashes in the district since 2013, 27 of them being either serious or fatal. Three drink drivers were stopped by police last week and four were stopped the week before that. Sergeant Phil Bayne said there was still a lot of work to be done in spite of a clear improvement. “It’s very difficult to tell over one weekend whether things have actually improved, for all we know it could increase next weekend.” Sergeant Bayne said police would continue to have a high visibility throughout the community to ensure drink driving remained low. •Turn to page 8 Need water?
