Cambridgeshire: Xmas Drink Drive Arrests
102 drivers were arrested for drinking and driving in Cambridgeshire during the Christmas period.
The figure compares with 110 arrests during the same period in 2011.
A total of 15,946 drivers were stopped between December 1st and December 31st 2012.
21 of the arrests were made in the Cambridge area, compared to 36 in 2011.
28 drivers were arrested in in the Huntingdon and Fenland area, compared to 37 the previous year.
53 were arrested in the Peterborough area, compared to 37 in 2011.
PC Steve Gedny, casualty reduction officer, said: "While it's encouraging to see fewer drivers arrested than last year, sadly any arrest is one too many.
It appears our message is getting through, but it is always disappointing to see that there are still a number of motorists who think it is acceptable to drive while under the influence of drink or drugs.
This year we carried out more stop checks than ever before and 1,143 breath tests were carried out.
Not only were drivers being stopped as part of our Christmas drink drive campaign but also during routine daily patrols and at incidents.
This work was not just about enforcement but reminding motorists that officers are on the roads 24/7 as a deterrent to those contemplating driving under the influence.
Although the campaign is over, our work will continue as we strive to make the roads safer and I would ask drivers to think about the potentially devastating consequences of drink driving, such as serious injury or even death."
