    A multi-agency police sting in Wellington has stopped over 1200 vehicles - with several drivers pinged for poor road safety

    A multi-agency police sting in Wellington has stopped over 1200 vehicles - with several drivers pinged for poor road safety


    Police, the New Zealand Transport Agency, Wellington Free Ambulance, and Fire and Emergency NZ held a prevention operation last night to encourage road safety over summer.

    Twelve-hundred and 27 vehicles were stopped over two hours.

    Acting Superintendent Amelia Steel says the vast majority of people they stopped were doing everything right and driving safely.

    But she says they stopped too many people over the breath alcohol limit, three of whom registered over 400 micrograms.

    Six tickets were issued for other road safety offences such as not wearing a seatbelt.
