New Zealand police arrest pregnant teenager for drink driving


AUCKLAND, January 29 (RIA Novosti) - Police in New Zealand have arrested a pregnant 14-year-old driver who was allegedly six times over the alcohol limit, local media said on Thursday.

The Northern Advocate newspaper said on its website that the girl was stopped for "driving erratically" in Whangarei, in the north of the country, on Tuesday. It later turned out that the driver was four months' pregnant and provided police with a false name which she had difficulty spelling.

In New Zealand, you must be at least 15 years old to get a driving license and 18 years old to drink alcohol.

Local medics have also raised concerns over the possible harm caused by drinking on the unborn baby, the newspaper said.

A local hospital obstetrician said that the "harm is the same" regardless of her age.

"Nobody knows how much or how little alcohol is safe during pregnancy so the general recommendation is to avoid it altogether," Ian Page said.

The girl will be referred to the Youth Aid organization.
