Summer crackdown on drink driving in Gloucestershire

Eight arrests have been made in the second week of the summer drink drive crackdown in Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire Road Safety Partnership launched the campaign at the beginning of the month to ensure all football fans set for Euro 2012, as well as other drivers, heed their warnings about how long alcohol can stay in your system.
 
Eight drivers, six men and two women, were arrested in the county over the last seven days of the campaign (Friday June 8 to Thursday June 14) which sees extra patrols in place with officers conducting breath tests at the side of the road.
 
All of the drivers arrested in the last seven days, who age between 18 and 52, have been charged with offences and bailed to appear before the Magistrates Courts in the county.

The arrests this week bring the total for the campaign so far to 18.
