Drink and Drug Drive Campaign

Alert message sent 12/01/2019 17:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police

ARRESTS: More than 160 drivers arrested during the festive drink and drug drive campaign.

A total of 166 people were arrested during a Christmas crackdown on drink and drug drivers in Nottinghamshire.

It follows a joint Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service campaign which raised awareness of the dangers and consequences of drink and drug driving, using a combination of education and enforcement.

At the beginning of December the Force also pledged its support to the annual Christmas Drink and Drug Driving Campaign led by the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC).

Of the 166 arrests in Nottinghamshire, between 1 December 2018 and 1 January 2019 inclusive, 142 of those were for drink driving and 22 for drug driving.

Of those arrested, 104 drivers were charged to court, 46 were released under investigation and 16 were released with no further action.

The total arrests figure is an increase on the two previous Christmas campaigns in Nottinghamshire which resulted in 109 arrests in 2017/18 and 112 in 2016/17.

As part of our awareness-raising campaign, which ran over the festive period, officers engaged with members of the public at events In Nottingham and Mansfield, offering advice and raising awareness of the risks and consequences of drink and drug driving.

If you know or suspect that someone is driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, try to discourage them but if they won’t listen to you ring us and report them.

"Call us on 101 or 999 if there's an immediate threat to life or property. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
