The St. Gallen cantonal police demanded a lot for the driveway weekend. Six road users were driving on the streets of St. Gallen without a driver’s license or were stopped at the border without a license when entering Switzerland. Dozens of other road users were arrested for further violations of the Road Traffic Act brought to the display.

On Thursday morning, for example, a 66-year-old driver drove onto the A13 motorway near Trübbach SG and saw that it Stay Has. To avoid this, the man drove backwards back down the freeway entrance. The police patrol was there because of the traffic jam and was able to stop the man directly. His driver’s license was taken away on the spot.

Some road users in Ricken and Lömmenschwil also had a problem. In Ricken, a 78-year-old and a 24-year-old motorcyclist were measured at 120 and 126 km/h at the permitted 80 km/h. In Lömmenschwil, a 58-year-old and a 40-year-old driver drove into the speed trap at 133 and 122 km/h at the permitted 80 km/h.

drinking and driving

Several drunk drivers were also stopped over the weekend. In Oberbüren, for example, a 52-year-old man was caught by the police on Friday. His breath alcohol test showed a value of 1.5 per thousand. Furthermore, customs authorities stopped a 35-year-old driver at the border crossing in Diepoldsau, who only had a moped ID.

On Saturday evening, two road users continued on foot after a traffic check in Haag. A breath alcohol test carried out on a 57-year-old driver showed that the value was too high. After the alcohol breath test in a 56-year-old man, a value of 1.1 per thousand was found. Drunk drivers were also checked early on Sunday morning in Henau and Altstätten.

A total of twelve ID cards were confiscated. All road users listed will be reported to the public prosecutor’s office of the canton of St. Gallen. The responsible road traffic offices will also be notified to review administrative measures.

disturbances and arguments

In addition, the cantonal police of St. Gallen was also heavily challenged with other operations over the driveway weekend. Just requests for checks (suspicious findings), requests for help (medical emergencies or cases without criminal relevance in which citizens needed help), disturbances of the peace or interventions in the interpersonal area (cases of arguments or people in exceptional psychological situations) triggered the deployment of a police patrol around 160 times out.
