Essex Drink-Drive Campaign Results

7 January 2011, 05:00

Fewer drivers tested positive for alcohol in December compared to 2009 but police say some continue to ignore the message.

More than 4,000 vehicles were stopped as part of their Christmas anti-drink drive campaign last month.

Sergeant Mick Green from the Casualty Reduction Unit's told Heart: "It's encouraging news that the percentage is down but disappointing that we've got 125 drivers out there who're prepared to exceed the drink-drive limit and are now going to lose their license and livelihood. But more importantly, they were selfish enough on that day to think that they're going to go out and drive and put you and i and our families in danger on the roads."

If you are caught over the legal drink-drive limit drivers face a driving ban for at least a year.
