Leicestershire Police say a total of 86 people have been arrested for being over the legal alcohol limit whilst in charge of a motor vehicle in the past month.

Superintendent Jim Holyoak, Road Policing Unit at Leicestershire Police said:

“No officer wants to have to knock on someone’s door and deliver the message that a loved one has died or been seriously injured at the hands of a drink driver.”

If you drink alcohol we will catch up with you, we are determined to make our roads safer and this starts by removing those individuals who recklessly drink and drive on our roads.”
