Police chief warns drink drivers as £1000 rewards offered

This time of year is one of celebration for many including work parties and especially with family and friends. Our message is simple – if you are having a drink don’t drive.

Our campaign is very much intelligence led and by working with Crimestoppers it will allow us to target those who persistently drink and drive rather than conducting mass-testing.

If you drink alcohol or take drugs before driving, we’ll catch up with you. We are determined to make our roads safer and this starts by removing those individuals who recklessly drink and drug drive on our roads.

– Chief Inspector Steve Wilson, head of roads policing in Derbyshire
