Yes we do get drink drivers on a weekday
Thursday, 26 September 2013 -
Hamilton Police instantly suspended a
female driver’s license for 28 days after she blew 735
micrograms of alcohol, per litre of breath, at a Snell Drive
checkpoint this morning.
"This woman was toasted at 8.00am
in the morning" said Sergeant Paul Scoble of the Waikato
Traffic Alcohol Group.
“She won the jackpot and spent
the night drinking all her profits. She slept in her car and

drivers don't discriminate with the time of day. It was
only through the grace of God she didn't kill anyone on the
road in her condition," Sgt Scoble said.
driver will appear in the Hamilton District

A final piece of hypocrisy in the statement is the promise to ‘further our consultation with stakeholders and engage in our respective political processes’. More>>
