Six Indian tourists driving rental cars were deemed to be unfit to be driving by Queenstown police yesterday.

Acting Sergeant Phil Hamlin said police received several traffic complaints about the vehicles crossing the centre line and weaving across Gorge Rd.

The tourists were part of a tour group who were all using rental cars, and after six of the group were forbidden to drive, the tour host organised a bus to continue travelling in.

Acting Sergeant Hamlin said the rental company was happy to revoke the rental.
