The Metropolitan Police Bureau, reporting on the results of its strict traffic disciplinary measures over the past three months, said that 7,204 people out of the 30,000 tested have been found guilty of drunk driving.

Most of the wrongdoers caught are men aged between 20 and 30. Police say that the biggest concern is that the violators all know that it is against the law to drink and drive.

However, the report also showed that road accidents had dropped in number with fewer deaths and injuries. The main causes of accidents still remain driving too close to other cars and speeding.
