Dunedin drivers who are drinking behind the wheel are being urged by police to curb their enthusiasm for cold ones.
Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said officers manned checkpoints near Brighton on Thursday evening.
A 36-year old man recorded 701mcg, had his licence suspended and was given a court date.
Police at the checkpoint noted several drivers who were drinking from open boxes of alcohol on their way home.
"Wait 10 minutes until you get home, so that you’re concentrating on the journey," Snr Sgt Bond said.
