Three men were arrested by officers in Jersey as part of their Christmas drink drive campaign.

3,218
drivers were stopped on roads as part of the Jersey Police campaign.

Of the three offences, one was made following a call from a member of the public.

The same number of drivers were arrested in 2016 for drink driving during the December period.

This is two thirds less compared to 2015.

9
people were arrested in 2015 for drink driving over the festive period.

The low number of arrests is a very encouraging sign, we hope this means the message is getting through to people of how dangerous it is to get behind the wheel when you have had a drink.
