Nottinghamshire drink drive campaign: 135 arrested

A total of 135 motorists were arrested for being over the limit during the annual drink drive campaign in Nottinghamshire.

The campaign ran throughout December and over the New Year in which officers stopped motorists suspected of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

A substantial number of motorists out there continue to drink and drive regardless of the consequences – risking their own lives and that of others by doing so.

As the figures show many drivers didn’t heed our warnings and are now facing a hefty fine, a lengthy driving ban and even a spell behind bars.
