The number of people arrested in KwaZulu-Natal for drunken driving during the festive season increased by 20 percent over the previous year, the province's traffic chief revealed in Durban on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press briefing on road safety, KwaZulu-Natal Road Traffic Inspectorate chief John Schnell said the 664 drivers arrested between December 1, 2006, and January 7, 2007, represented a 20 percent increase over the previous year.

"What is of considerable concern is the degree to which people are drunk," he said.

Schnell said that numerous people had been arrested at road blocks in the province, particularly in Durban and Pietermaritzburg, who were "incoherently drunk and close to paralytic".

He labelled Florida Road in Durban and Longmarket Street in Pietermaritzburg as the worst locations for drunk driving. - Sapa
