After nearly a hundred people failed breath tests this time last year, police say they'll be cracking down even harder this Christmas.
– Chief Inspector Kevin Greenhow, Cumbria Police
Last year in Cumbria we conducted almost three and a half thousand breath tests in the month of December. That is over a hundred breath testa a day in Cumbria. We'll be doing at least as much as that this year. Disappointingly out of that we were also arresting three people a day. So there is far likelihood that if you are drink driving there is a very strong likelihood that you will be arrested.
