Summer drink/drug drive campaign launched

Northamptonshire Police have launched their summer drink and drug driving campaign.

The campaign, which coincides with the start of Euro 2016, will see officers take breath test readings from drivers during a focused, countywide period of activity dealing with these driving offences.

The enforcement activities will be carried out by officers from the joint Safer Roads Team (Northamptonshire Police and Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service), as part of their work to cut the number of collisions on the county’s roads.

Although many of the operations will be carried out in the evenings or afternoons, the campaign will also involve morning checks, due to the number of drivers who may not realise they are still over the driving limit after consuming alcohol the night before.
