Norfolk Police have been cracking down on drink drivers as part of their December campaign.

In 18 days they've arrested 44 people for the offence.

Of those, 15 people were fast tracked to court where they lost their licence and were fined.

It can have devastating effects on families who are victims of the crime

Chief Inspector Kris Barnard, Head of the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team, said:

"I hope the results go some way to demonstrate the point that officers are out there targeting those that cause a danger on our roads.

"We are also grateful to the members of the public who have assisted with information and have allowed us to take action. Of course, I would rather that everyone only drove when they were fit to do so. Our officers will continue to keep the pressure on those that choose to put themselves and others in danger.

"I hope all are able to enjoy the festive period but I urge everyone to consider that the consequences of drink or drug driving are absolutely not worth the risk.”

 

Members of the public are encouraged to keep reporting any concerns on the online portal which has been set-up to enable individuals to report any concerns relating to suspected drink or drug-driving directly to the Roads and Armed Policing Team.

In case of an emergency, or if you believe a crime is in progress, always dial 999.
