Names of 22 people charged during Christmas campaign.

Names of 22 people charged during Christmas campaign.

This year’s drink drive campaign resulted in 54 arrests, a decrease in 3 from the 57 arrested during last year’s campaign.

Gloucestershire Road Safety Partnership’s “Eat, think and be Merry” campaign ran from 1 December 2014 until the end of 1 January 2015.

The arrests resulted in 35 people being charged. A further 11 people remain on police bail and eight people who blew positive at the roadside but were just under the limit at the police station have been released without action.

Chief Inspector Charlie Laporte said: “These figures are still too high but it is encouraging that the number of arrests is slightly down from last year.

“While the Christmas campaign is over we will continue our work to clamp down on drink driving all year round and educate people on what is safe and social driving.

“The dangers and possible implications for the driver and other road users of drink driving have been clear for a long time – so there really is no excuse for doing it.”
