Four more found guilty of driving under the influence

The police yesterday said that four more persons have been found guilty of driving under the influence and fined $7,500 each.

The size of the fine has been described by some as not a sufficient deterrent to people who drink and drive. The naming of the guilty is part of a new campaign against driving under the influence.
