Two drunk drivers are to appear in court after being caught five times over the limit, in two separate incidents on Thursday night and early Friday morning.

The first is a 38-year-old who was checked during a routine traffic stop along the Nicosia-Akaki road, with a preliminary test indicating drunkenness. The final check returned a reading of 116μg – well over the 22μg limit.

The driver was arrested and is due to appear in court on Friday.

Just a few hours later, a 43-year-old in Famagusta was also found to be almost five times over the limit – having tested at 108μg.

He was charged in writing and is also to appear in court.
