Police arrest 16 motorists in drink driving crackdown

The Traffic Police conducted an island-wide operation earlier this year to catch drivers who had been drinking.

The operation took place along New Bridge Road, Kallang Road, Crawford Street and Clemenceau Ave between 1.30am to 4.00am.

Traffic Police administered the breathalyser test to 61 motorists, and 16 drink drivers aged between 28 and 55 years were arrested after they failed the test.

The highest breathalyser result clocked was 68 mg of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, nearly two times the prescribed legal limit of 35 mg/100ml.
