A group of tourists are lucky to have escaped unharmed after the campervan they were travelling overturned near Omarama.

Police communications spokesman Rick Jury said the campervan rolled while taking on tight right-hand bend on the Twizel to Omarama Road, just a few kilometres north of Omarama.

"The vehicle was uprighted, and there were no injuries," he said.

It was not known how many tourists were in the campervan at the time, or where they were from.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
