During the inspection, 120 vehicles, among others, were checked. In 2 cases a too high blood alcohol level was blown. The drivers were fined for this. It was not easy to catch 1 of the 2 drivers as they tore across the Werd at 120 km/h. There were 2 arrests where a firearm resembling a real firearm was found with 1 suspect.
