    Police say you should expect to get breath-tested this summer

    Police say you should expect to get breath-tested this summer


    Eighteen people have been prosecuted for drink driving in Hawke's Bay last night.

    Nearly 15-hundred cars were stopped at a large checkpoint at the roundabout of Pakowhai Road and Te Ara Kahikatea at Hastings between 6 and 9.

    Eastern District Road Policing Manager Inspector Matt Broderick says getting breath-tested isn't the worst thing that could happen.

    He says they're there to prevent death and injury.

    Broderick says there'll be a focus on drink-driving this summer to keep everyone on the roads safe.
