The arrest of ten drivers who were allegedly driving under the influence of liquor last night in the Western Division has become a real worry for the Fiji Police Force.

The drink and drive suspects were apprehended via Operation Blitz which is currently being conducted in the Division.

This added on to the 22 cases recorded since the operation began on the 11th of October till the 24th shows there is still a blatant disregard for road rules and how some drivers are still selfishly putting the lives of others at risk.

Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said a driver last night was arrested after he failed a breathalyzer test and tried to run away from traffic officers.

"Following a five minute chase by our officers the driver was arrested and taken in for questioning," she said.

"The emotional and physical impacts an accident causes are insurmountable and people still don’t realize the consequences of getting behind the wheel of a car when their judgment is affected by alcohol."

"Drivers need serious attitude adjustments as they are putting the lives of others at great risk and not taking into consideration the impacts getting into an accident would also have on their families."

Operation Blitz from 11-24 October has recorded a total of 885 speeding offences, 43 seat belt cases, 156 careless driving cases, 332 cases of Illegal operation, 15 cases of driving without a licence and 169 other offences.
