POS DUI Task Force And Traffic And Highway Patrol Branch Crack Down On Drunk Driving

Road traffic exercises in several Police Divisions have netted several motorists driving under the influence of alcohol.

In one such exercise conducted between 11 pm yesterday and 3 am today, officers of the Port of Spain DUI Task Force arrested and charged four persons for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence.

A total of 38 Electronic Fixed Penalty Notices were also issued.

In the Central Division, a DUI exercise in the Couva district between 9 pm and 12 midnight Thursday resulted in the arrest of one man for driving under the influence, while another was held on two outstanding warrants.

In the Western Division, officers of the Carenage Police Station arrested two persons for driving without a driver’s permit, without a certificate of insurance and driving without the vehicle owner’s consent.

The TTPS will continue to impose a strong presence on the nation’s roads across the country this weekend and during Carnival Monday and Tuesday and take a zero tolerance approach to DUI offences and other road traffic infringements.
