Residents of Mafeking Village in Mayaro want National Security Minister Jack Warner to tell them why police officers were unable to administer breathalyser tests on Christmas Day. Their request follows an incident in which a pick up van conveying Santa Claus around to deliver toys on Christmas Day was struck by a man driving a Nissan Laurel car. Residents said the incident happened around 4.50pm on the Napariama Mayaro Road near Grace Fellowship Church. 
When the police arrived on the scene they said the technician to conduct the test was unavailable and the other officers were not trained to do so. Residents also claimed they were not treated with respect when they arrived at the Mayaro Police Station to file a report. It was the first time the residents organised a treat for needy children of Mafeking.
