Police are warning drivers to act responsibly around Christmas parties after catching two P-platers drink driving in Hamilton.
Sergeant Mark Phillips, of Hamilton police, said a male in his 20s recorded a breathalyser reading in Hamilton between 0.02 and 0.05 after returning from cricket training last week.
"He had a few drinks and decided to drive and should have known better," Sergeant Phillips said.
The man received a penalty notice from police.
He said police also intercepted a Dunkeld female in her 20s who recorded a reading around 0.1, with the woman receiving a penalty notice and a suspension to her licence.
"Coming up to the festive time of year people will be out socialising, especially coming out of less restrictive COVID restrictions," Sergeant Phillips said.
"People need to remember to act responsibly on the roads. If you're going to have drink you need to arrange alternative transport."
