Anti-Drink-Drive Campaign.

Anti Drink Drive Campaign.

From 1st December the Metropolitan Police Traffic Unit are now carrying out patrols dedicated to reducing drink / drug driving. They are being supported by officers across all boroughs. There will be an increase in roadside breath tests to deter and raise awareness. In addition to the hand held breath test equipment to detect drink driving, officers will be using a series of exercises to find drug use, known as Field Impairment Tests (FITs). The tests will show balance, coordination and reaction of motorists.

Breath Test

Anyone found to be driving under the influence of drink or drugs will be arrested and taken into custody. Offenders can lose their licence, be fined or sent to prison.

Superintendent Husk from the Metropolitan Police Service Traffic Unit said "Motorists need to be aware of the dangers and possible consequences when they decide to drive under the influence of drink or drugs. Their decision could be the difference between life and death."

The advice from the Police is: If driving, make alternative arrangements to get home that does not involve driving. Take a licenced taxi, black cab or mini cab. Take care when driving, the morning after you have been drinking, as alcohol may still be in your system and the driver may still be over the limit.
