Joining local police at a random alcohol breath-testing stop last week were members of Wanaka Students Against Dangerous Driving.Member Kenzie Muir said they approached the police as a small community group to take part in the breath-testing stops as they wanted to get further into the community and talk to drivers. “We got to learn how their breath-testing stops work and how police work as an organisation, from the planning process through to the execution of the stop.” When drivers had finished the steps involved with the breath-test, drivers who were sober were asked if they could be spoken to by a couple of students. “We got to then speak to the drivers, thanking them on behalf of Sadd for driving sober and letting them know their actions were saving lives. “It was a great night with the drivers overall being super-accommodating. “We look forward to future activities with our police.”
