A total of 174 drivers have risked their lives and the lives of others by drinking and driving.

These motorists provided positive breath tests, or failed to give a specimen, during the latest drink drive campaign which ran in Suffolk and Norfolk throughout June.

Officers from the joint Roads Policing Unit were supported by local patrol and Safer Neighbourhood Teams in stopping and breathalysing 4,648 drivers.

Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, said: “All of those people who were over the limit in June gave little or no thought to others when they got behind the wheel.

“Drink driving is one of the fatal four driving behaviours which makes you more likely to be killed or seriously injured, or kill or seriously injure someone else, in a road traffic collision.”
