Drivers realise that impaired driving is not worth the risk

24 January 2014

Figures released by ACPO show that drink-drive arrests were down by around 8%, despite an 8% rise in the number of breath tests administered over the Christmas 2013 period.

The campaign, which ran in England, Wales and Northern Ireland from 29 November 2013 to 1 January 2014, resulted in 191,040 breath tests being administered, up from 175,831 in 2012. Of those, 6,550 tests were either positive, failed or refused - a reduction of around 8% compared with the 2012 figure of 7,123.
