100 arrested during drink driving campaign

A month-long campaign against drink and drug driving in Dorset has led to 100 drivers being arrested. The number of arrests have increased this year compared to last year's campaign, which saw 88 people arrested.

Our message, as ever, remains simple – do not risk lives by drinking and driving.

– Chief Inspector Matt Butler, Head of Dorset Police’s Traffic Unit

During the campaign last month every driver involved in a collision was breath tested by police. Drivers face a 12 month driving ban if convicted and could face up to six months in prison or a £5,000 fine.
