195 drivers in Norfolk and Suffolk test positive during drink drive campaign

Anyone convicted of drink driving faces losing their licence, a fine and possibly a jail term.

More than 3,500 motorists in Norfolk and Suffolk have been stopped by police during a crackdown on drink and drug driving. During the month long campaign in June a total of 3,526 drivers were breathalysed with 195 positive tests.

Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, Head of Roads Policing in Norfolk and Suffolk, said: "I still find it hard to believe that people are prepared to risk their lives and those of others by getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. Put simply - they are dicing with death.

"Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs your judgement, making your reactions slower and therefore increases the chances of being involved in a collision.

"We target motorists all year round but this campaign allows us to focus attention on drink drivers; enforcing the law and educating motorists."
