Nearly 100 people caught in Cambs drink driving crack down
NEARLY 100 people were caught drink driving in Cambridgeshire last month.
Cambridgeshire police launched a campaign to crackdown on the number of motorists driving under the influence of drink or drugs and officers arrested 97 people.
The drink drive hot line, part of a three month trial for reporting people suspected of drink driving, was called 174 times, resulting in five arrests.
Inspector Chris Skepper said: “It is encouraging to see so many members of the public getting behind the campaign and calling the confidential line.
“Not only has this led to a number of arrests but we are also pulling together packages about named drivers to ensure we know where they are next time they decide to get behind the wheel and break the law.

“The national enforcement campaign may be over but our work is not and we will continue to target those who think it’s acceptable to drive while under the influence.
