Christmas Drink-Drive crackdown

South Wales police have launched their campaign against drink-drivers over the seasonal period. Over the next four weeks, thousands of motorists face being stopped as teams from South Wales and across Wales conduct road checks at various locations all over the country. During the 2012 Christmas campaign, over 500 drivers in Wales were caught over the drink drive limit after 35,493 breath tests.

Wayne Tucker, South Wales Police road safety manager said:

“It cannot be stressed highly enough that any amount of drugs or alcohol can impair a person’s ability to judge speed and distance, and inevitably endanger the lives of other motorists. Whatever the time of year drug and drink driving will not be tolerated.”
