Driver arrested on DUI after early morning crash

| 21/07/2017 | 3 Comments

(CNS): A 44-year-old woman was arrested Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence following an early morning smash on Frank Sound Road, north of the fire station by the junction of Rossini and Union Streets. Police were dispatched to the single-vehicle smash at around 1:15 this morning, where they found black Honda in the trees by the side of the road.

No other vehicle was involved and the driver was alone in the car. She suffered only minor injuries but the car was significantly damaged, the RCIPS said in a release. The  North Side woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and is now on police bail.

This is one of a string of crashes over the last seven days and comes a week after local Rotary clubs joined forces with the NRA and police to launch a road safety campaign, which so far appears to have had little effect on driving standards.

    Retest everyone. People who fail their tests go on a learners license with stiff regulations and penalties.

    Make visitors who wish to drive here require a test to be taken before a driver’s license is issues. Most these rental car drivers have no idea how to properly use roundabouts. Driving is a privilege and not a right.

      In addition to this being a stupid idea, the DVDL can’t even issue licenses and plates to the people that live here – who is going to come on vacation and sit for three days a government licensing facility.
