Police had a busy weekend, with Booze Busts set up in different locations. in 2019 alone, the Police have stopped 232 drink-drivers and 102 drug-drivers in the district. Speaking to The Daily Mercury, Sergeant Simon Robinson said 106 of those were mid to high-range readings.

"We've been noticing that there is starting to be a trend again of people drinking and driving and drug-driving,” "We're going to be hitting local areas pretty hard in relation to roadside drug-testing and roadside breath-testing. With the big RBT bus in town it's a bit of visual presence as well ... but it is surprising the amount of people who still do it.”

Last year Mackay district police pulled over 1207 drink-drivers, which roughly equals three a day. The total for drug-drivers was 615.
