The near and the dear ones, the old and the young…

We’re now four days into our annual Christmas drink and drug drive campaign and with every patrol car in Walsall and across the West Midlands carrying freshly calibrated breathalyser kits, our officers have been keeping the pressure on people considering driving after drinking with regular stop checks and operations.

I know that in the past few days there have been at least three arrests made by my shift alone for drink driving with one motorist found to be three times over the legal limit when he was tested at the station.

Sadly alcohol remains the primary factor in a quarter of all fatal road accidents and last year, males in their early twenties were the most likely to either fail or refuse a breath test following a traffic accident.

It can take many hours for alcohol levels to fall to safe levels following a night out and many people are caught the morning after – the only reliable way to avoid the risk is not to drink at all.

The above video only hints at how horrific the consequences of driving after drink of drugs can be – please, please don’t risk it.
