"Thankfully tonight no arrests were required, but a number of offences including refusing to provide a breath sample and excess speed were detected," the post reads.

"We will be relentless in the run up to Christmas to conduct similar operations both mid week and at weekends to send out the message that drink and drug driving is never acceptable."
