Twenty people have been arrested on suspicion of drink or drug driving as North Yorkshire police continue their Christmas crackdown. Patrols have been out on the roads across the county and city of York looking for potential offenders.
Eight of the 20 people arrested have been charged to appear at court in the New Year.
"The Christmas Safety Campaign has been running for one week now and as part of the initiative we have been targeting people who think they can get away with drinking and taking drugs before driving.
"Put simply, anyone who gets behind the wheel under the influence of drink or drugs is putting the lives at risk and we will not tolerate it. The simple alternative to drink driving is to plan your journey home in advance of a night out.
Book a taxi, arrange for someone to pick you up, take public transport or appoint a designated driver - all are far better options then a night in a cell, a driving ban, or causing serious injuries to yourself or someone else."
Traffic Sergeant Andy Morton, of North Yorkshire Police
