In a major anti-drink driving blitz on Thursday morning, police arrested 16 motorists aged between 24 and 55.

The operations saw police conduct breathalyser tests at Clemenceau Avenue, Crawford Street, Jalan Toa Payoh and Kallang Road.

14 men and two women had flunked the test, with the most egregious offender recording a test result of 54 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

Drink drivers that are convicted are disqualified from driving for at least 12 months, and will have to retake the theory and practical driving tests in order to obtain their driving licences again.
