Drink and driving warning

A month-long operation ramping up the fight against drink and drug drivers has been on-going by Police.

The initiative coincides with the warmer weather and the Euro, which police expect will bring with it more temptation to drive under the influence.

The operation started on 1 June and will continue throughout June.

New kit and legislation were introduced last year making it quicker and easier than ever to catch drug drivers. Using a swab of saliva, officers can test at the roadside for cannabis or cocaine.

Inspector Susan Redfern from GMP’s Road Policing Unit said: “Drink and drug driving ruins lives and we want your summer to be memorable for the right reasons. Don’t ruin it with a conviction or, worse still, serious injury or death.

“Please stick to ‘none for the road’ if you’re driving. If you’re under the influence, arrange alternative transport home or nominate a designated driver”.
