No holiday drink drive arrests, 14 to be prosecuted for curfew breaches
No arrests for drink driving were made at the island’s roadside breath test checkpoints over the Christmas holiday.
The checkpoints, which earlier reported no arrests up to Christmas Eve, went the rest of the way to their final night on Boxing Day with no impaired drivers stopped by police.
But a police spokeswoman said there had been 14 tickets issued for curfew violations since December 23.
The Government has committed to sticking to the curfew, from 12.30am to 5am, until January 20.
No total figure was available for the number of people stopped during curfew hours because police did not record people with exemptions or other legitimate reasons for being away from home.
