Road Policing Inspector Neil Morrison said: “The consequences of drink or drug driving are widely known and it is disappointing that drivers still believe it is acceptable to risk their safety and the safety of others.
“Anyone who has been drinking should ensure that they make alternative arrangements to get themselves home.
“For those who are detected and charged in relation to drink/drug driving it is a minimum 12-month driving ban, a criminal record, a substantial fine and the possibility of a prison sentence.
“If you have concern that someone is driving under the influence of drink or drugs, please call the police on 101 as soon as possible or anonymously via the charity, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
