No they can't but they can certainly be a lot stricter on infringements. I have seen people get told "go straight home" when blowing a little over the limit in the past. If pressure is coming from above then these sort of scenarios might easily start translating into arrests even though the chance of them being successfully prosecuted is slimm..This.
You can't just create fines, arrests out of thin air... Although I have seen it being done.
