Police claim progress in drunk driving blitz

A TOTAL of 702 motorists had been fined for driving under the influence of alcohol since random breathalyser tests were introduced in Phnom Penh, Kandal and Kampong Speu in October, officials said yesterday. Him Yan, director of the Ministry of Interior’s Department of Public Order, said more than 9,000 people had been tested over the three-month period and noted that drivers were more likely to break the law when traffic patrols were lax. “At night time, if there is no presence of police, the respect of law is low,” he said.
