Increase in drink and drug drivers caught in Hampshire – Spire FM

Hampshire is part of a Joint Roads Policing Unit alongside Thames Valley Police #8211; in total there were 601 people arrested.

Sergeant Rob Heard, Roads Policing Joint Operations Unit for Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary, said:

#8220;The lives of individuals and their families can be torn apart through a combination of physical, psychological and legal consequences. Too many people continue to be complacent about the realities of road deaths and serious injuries. That#8217;s why we want everyone to be clear about their responsibilities, and have respect for each other on the road.

The number of drink and drug drivers caught on Hampshire#8217;s roads during the Christmas campaign is up 12.6% on last year.
