The driver of a rental car and his passenger escaped injury when their vehicle failed to take a bend.

The pair went off the back road at Tutakimoa on Saturday morning.

The young driver told police he had fallen asleep at the wheel. He tested below the legal limit for alcohol.

It was a relatively quiet weekend for police, whose officers attended relatively few incidents.

Among those they did attend were several noise complaints and a few domestic disturbances.

One person was forbidden from driving and a small number of drivers were fined for minor offences.
