Almost 50 drink drivers reported in police crackdown
ALMOST 50 people have reported drink drivers to the police in the third week of Cambridgeshire police’s drink drive campaign
Officers arrested 28 motorists on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and the force’s anonymous reporting line received 49 calls.
Insp Chris Skepper said: “It is always disappointing to find that some drivers are still flouting the law.
“We will continue our proactive approach by conducting regular stop checks to ensure those people who ignore the law are brought to justice.
“The numbers of calls to our drink drive line increased significantly over the past week which is extremely encouraging and are currently following up this information.”

“We know there are people out there who still feel it is acceptable to drive under the influence and there are also people who know who these offenders are.
“They may not feel comfortable reporting drink and drug drivers so the confidential line is available to allow people to do this without having to leave their details.
