Three arrested for drink-driving within hours


Police arrested three people on Tuesday night (March 12) for drink drive related offences, and have warned those who persist in this type of activity that they will face the full consequences of their actions.

It’s disappointing that despite our warnings, people still took the risk of killing or injuring themselves, their family, friends and other innocent road users by deciding to drive after drinking.


Area Commander Chief Inspector Sue Ann Steen said: “These people will face the prospect of going to court where they will almost certainly lose their driving licence. They should count themselves lucky. They could have lost their own life or destroyed the lives of others had police not stopped them.

“Our aim is to save lives and reduce the number of injuries on our roads .”

”While we welcome the fact that the vast majority of right thinking people realise that drink driving is shameful and unacceptable, clearly there is still an irresponsible minority who ignore all advice and warnings.

The detection of drink driving will remain a year-round priority for police in F District.”

Police stopped and made three arrests in Irvinestown, Fintona and Omagh on Tuesday night. Of those arrested one man has been charged to appear at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on March 25th.
