Christmas clampdown on drink and drug drivers

Throughout the Christmas period, and into the New Year Cheshire police will be running an operation targeting motorists who feel it’s acceptable to drive while under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

Inspector Steve Griffiths, of the Roads Policing Unit said: “I understand that Christmas is a time to celebrate and have fun; however that does not mean that it is acceptable to drive under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

“Doing so slows your reaction time, meaning that you are more likely to be involved in a collision. Both are unacceptable, and in my opinion there is simply no excuse for putting the lives of innocent road users at risks.

“It’s not just about driving home following a night out with friends, it’s also important that everyone thinks about the morning after. Alcohol and illegal drugs affect everyone in different ways and just because you’ve had a couple of hours’ sleep, it doesn’t mean that you’re in a fit state to drive.”
