St Helena Police have now concluded their Drink-Drive campaign, ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’, which ran from December 2017 through to 7 January 2018.
The purpose of the campaign was to ensure public safety on the roads of St Helena and was aimed at both drivers and other road users.
Police presence was high throughout the Island and a total of 40 persons were dealt with during the duration of the campaign. Road Traffic Collisions made up 12 of the offences with a further 28 Minor Traffic Offences committed. Only one person was dealt with for driving whilst being over the prescribed limit.
The majority of offences detected were committed in the Jamestown area, however during the late evenings and early mornings the more serious offences were committed in other areas outside of Jamestown.
Although the campaign has now concluded, the Police will continue to monitor the roads of St Helena to ensure that drivers are complying with the law.
St Helena Police would like to thank the public for their cooperation and support during this time.
We will strive to keep you, the public safe. Help us to help you!
