Throughout the month the force has additional patrols on the county’s roads to tackle those who risk their lives and the lives of others by getting behind the wheel after drinking or taking drugs.

Now ahead of New Year’s Eve on Saturday, officers are once again urging people not to take the risk and to leave their car keys at home.

Inspector Jamie Langwith from the Roads Policing Unit said: “It is never acceptable to drive when you’re over either the drink or drug limit. If caught you risk a hefty fine and penalty points – but if that’s not a strong enough deterrent then please think about how you would feel if you killed someone as a result of your actions.

“We want everyone to have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve, so please leave the car at home if you’re planning on having a drink; get a taxi home or stick to the soft drinks if you are the designated driver.”
