OPERATION CAPTURE CRACKS DOWN ON DRINK DRIVING Southport policeman, Sergeant Joe Black reports that random breath testing will be increased this weekend, due to 17 arrests for drink driving within the past 24 hours. An additional 50 police officers have been rostered on RBT duty to combat drink driving in an operation called Operation Capture. Of the 17 arrests, the majority occurred on the Gold Coast Highway at Surfers Paradise, and Sgt Black says this area will be targeted, along with Southport.
