West Midlands Police have arrested three people on suspicion of driving under the influence in the last 24 hours as part of their drink drive campaign.
The force caught one hundred and seventy six people driving over the limit as part of their Christmas crackdown and say they are determined to get dangerous drivers off the region's streets.
Twenty per cent more drink drivers have been caught in Northamptonshire this Christmas than at the same point last year.
The force launched its latest crackdown at the beginning of December and so far 69 people have been arrested for being over the alcohol limit.
At this time last year, just 58 people had been caught.
PC Chris Gray said the figures were worrying.
Of the 69 people arrested so far this year, all but six were men. Those found guilty of drink driving face up to six months in prison, a fine, or a driving ban of at least one year.
