Chief Inspector John Wadsworth said it appeared the "message was getting through" that if you drive with alcohol or drugs, it's a matter of when and not if you'll get caught.
Over 2500 random breath tests were administered by both highway patrol and general duty officers across the district.
13 seat belt infringements, 82 speeding tickets and 82 other tickets were doled out.
"We were happy with the results over the weekend, as it appears people are getting the message," Chief Inspector Wadsworth said.
So it's not a matter of if you get caught - but when, if you choose to drink or drug drive.Chief Inspector John Wadsworth
"They know police will be around during these operations, but it is becoming more and more common that we have one operation rolling straight on into the other, with Operation Merritt continuing - targeting random drug and drink testing.

Operation Merritt runs until October 26.
