Hong Kong Police Thursday announced that 14 drivers were arrested in a citywide anti-drink driving operation from Oct. 23 to 27.

During the five-day operation, more than 80 roadblocks and spot- checks were mounted. Among the 1,512 drivers tested, 14 were unable to pass the breath tests and were arrested.

Since tougher drink driving laws were introduced on Feb. 9, the police have conducted breath tests on 29,776 drivers, arresting 149 of them for failing the tests or refusing to be tested.

The police remind motorists not to drink and drive. Offenders face three years' jail and a 25,000 HK dollars (about 3,229 U.S. dollars) fine.
