South Yorkshire Police has today launched its summer drink and drug driving enforcement campaign.
During last year’s summer drink drive enforcement, officers arrested 133 motorists for drink driving offences in South Yorkshire. 22 drivers out of the 133 (almost 7%) were prosecuted after they were involved in collisions.
This year Police enforcement in South Yorkshire will target drivers at all times of the day, focusing particularly on those driving in the evening and first thing in the morning. Police work will include educating people about the dangers of drink and drug driving as well as high profile breathalyser testing.
