Drink drivers warned of summer blitz

A three week drink-driving blitz would focus on roads surrounding WA's licensed premises, Police Minister Rob Johnson says.
 
With an additional $300,000 from the state government funding 5,000 extra patrol hours, police would target drink driving and alcohol-related offences in hotspots mapped out using intelligence gathered from local police, as well as the traffic and liquor enforcement divisions.
 
"Summer is traditionally a time when people are out socialising, however I am urging them that if they are planning to drink, then they should make plans not to drive," Mr Johnson said.

Operation Octopus, launched today by Mr Johnson and Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan, would begin tonight and run until the end of January.
 
The same operation during 2009/10 resulted in 337 drink and drug related charges being laid. Of those, 43 people were arrested and there were 107 charges for anti-social behaviour, crime and liquor offences.
