Drink and drive offences

Solomons' police chief concerned at drink driving offences

Matthew Varley told the Solomon Star newspaper 36 drink drivers were caught in May, 28 in June and 11 so far this month.

Mr Varley said this corresponds with 32 traffic accidents in May, 32 in June and 18 in July.

The commissioner said police are still seeing people out on the roads drinking and driving at all hours of the day and night.

Mr Varley has appealed to the community and to the media to help get the message out that drink driving is a dangerous practice that makes the roads less safe for everyone.
