A road safety charity is urging the public to stop drink driving this summer after figures have risen across our region in the heatwave.
5,170 of the 100,892 drivers breathalysed in the month-long crackdown failed the test.
The UK drink drive limit is 80mg alcohol per 100ml blood which is the highest in Europe.
Road safety charity Brake is urging people to be vigilant about all forms of drink driving as drink drive casualties normally peak over the summer.
The charity is asking people to never drive after drinking any amount of alcohol and to speak out about drink driving.
