The convictions mean a total of 45 people have now been dealt with by the courts as part of the drink-drive campaign.

Of the 17, 15 admitted drink-driving while two pleaded guilty to failing to give a specimen for analysis, after officers stopped their vehicles and asked them to.

Chief Inspector Natalie Moloney said: “Although the majority of those convicted have been for drink-driving offences, a number have also been dealt with for refusing to be breathalysed after they were stopped.

“If you think you can avoid a driving conviction by not being breathalysed, think again. We will prosecute you and you will be punished.”
