A police crackdown on bus traffic in the Czech capital caught 10 drunk bus drivers in a single day, police said Wednesday.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The action Tuesday — the first of its kind here — targeted public transportation, tourist and long-distance buses. Besides catching the 10 drunk drivers, police fined 256 bus drivers for speeding and nine who were unable to present a valid driver’s license.

Officers taking part in the sweep checked 1,606 buses.

The Czech Republic has a zero-tolerance policy for drunk driving, meaning that anyone caught driving with any amount of alcohol in the body is considered a drunk driver.

Punishments usually include a suspension of the driver’s license and fines.
