136 people were arrested and charged in Avon and Somerset's Christmas anti-drink and drugs campaign. 857 motorists were given breath tests.
The campaign targeted persistent offenders and venues know for drink and drug driving, rather than roadside breath tests. Three drivers were tested for drugs driving, but none was positive and the force received 20 texts to a special number set up for people to report suspected offenders.
We take drink and drug driving seriously all year round, now just at Christmas, and people should know that we will continue to target and bring to justice any drivers who put themselves and others in danger.
