One driver was so drunk he had to be assisted by police to the booze bus. Police say they are disap- pointed at the number of highly intoxicated drivers stopped at the checkpoints. Two youths under 20 years were among those tested over the legal limit. There were 61 drivers who tested positive for excess breath alcohol, with 15 electing to have blood tests which determine whether they will face court proceedings. More than 10,000 drivers were stopped and tested dur- ing the drink drive blitz on Saturday and Sunday. North Shore police senior sergeant Brett Batty says Operation Lockdown 8 involved staff from through- out the Waitemata Police Dis- trict. Police are committed to reducing crime and crashes. If you drink and get behind the wheel, we will place you before the court,'' Mr Batty says. With the Christmas season almost upon us, operations like this should be taken as a timely reminder that North Shore police have zero tolerance for drink- driving.'' Police swamped areas to deny drunk or drug-impaired drivers access to their planned destination by locking down all available arterials into that particular area. Officers involved in the operation also impounded 12 cars and suspended the driver's licences of 31 people. Collections Officers and Justice Ministry bailiffs assisted police at several check points, checking vehicles and their occupants for unpaid fines. This resulted in seven drivers losing their vehicles at the roadside . Others made on-the-spot payments. Tree sellers warned Christmas tree sellers are urged to seek council advice before setting up shop. Auckland Council says the rules remain the same as they were under the for- mer local councils. They vary in terms of things like signs and permits depending on the location. Licensing and com- pliance manager Carole Todd says every year councils have to take action against a few traders who operate illegally or who are incon- siderate to neighbours and the public. Bylaw inspectors will be monitoring trading and taking action if necessary. Ms Todd says the council wants to give people advice so they set up properly and avoid problems that dampen Christmas fun and cheer.
