Western police report drop in drunken driver numbers

So far since the 26th of September, police have arrested 6 drivers for driving under the influence of alcohol, 5 passengers for drinking in a moving vehicle and 4 cars have been issued traffic Infringement notices (T.I.N) for being unroadworthy.

Police attribute this decrease to the increase in road checks in and out of the provincial areas.

Meantime a PMV bus was involved in an accident on Friday (October 17th) when the driver was speeding and flipped the car on the side of the road.
