Ten arrested in sobriety checkpoints

Ten motorists were arrested for impaired driving from Thursday night to early Sunday morning.

Eight of the arrests were at roadside sobriety checkpoints and a further two were after crashes elsewhere.

On Friday night, an off-duty police officer observed and reported a single vehicle rental scooter crash on Spurling Hill in Hamilton.

Patrol officers attended the scene and later arrested the male rider for impaired driving. He was apparently unhurt.

On Saturday night, police officers attended a reported single vehicle car crash on Harbour Road, Paget. The male driver was not injured and later arrested for impaired driving.

While checkpoints will not be in place this weekend, police warned they will still be looking for impaired drivers.

The spokesman said: “Members of the public are urged not to drive or ride under the influence as police officers conducting their regular patrols will be on the look out for any offences, including impaired driving.”
