Help police prevent drink drive incidents this festive season

Do you know someone who risks their life, and the lives of others, by getting behind the wheel of a car while over the drink drive limit?

This year Norfolk Police are supporting a national Crimestoppers campaign which urges people who know someone who regularly drink drives to give information anonymously. You can do this via Crimestoppers but if someone is about to commit an offence then call police on 999 so officers can be dispatched to the scene immediately.

Police in Norfolk and Suffolk have also launched their Christmas crackdown, which will involve carrying out extra patrols and breathalysing any driver who is stopped through concern over their manner of driving, a vehicle defect or involved in a collision. Last year 5,547, drivers were tested across both counties with 204 testing positive – a relatively small but nonetheless significant number.
