Over 140 motorists arrested for drink or drug driving in Thames Valley

Drink Driving

7:57am 24th December 2016

Over 140 motorists have been arrested so far as part of Thames Valley Police's Operation Holly.

Police are warning drivers who drive under the influence of alcohol and drugs that they will be caught and face serious consequences.

Between the 1st and 15th December this year the police have made:

  • 117 arrests for drink offences.
  • 30 arrests for drugs offences.
  • Five arrests for failing to provide a specimen offences.

Supt Simon Dodds, Head of the Joint Roads Policing Unit, said:

"Driving under the influence is a deliberate act. It is never an accident.

"If you are going out and plan to be having a drink, remove the temptation: leave your keys at home and arrange a lift.

"If you know somebody is driving under the influence - it could even be your friends or family - tell us so we can put a stop to it before it is too late."
