Don't Drink and Drive Campaign

Warwickshire Police will be proactively targeting suspected drink and drug drivers and raising awareness of the serious penalties they could face, during the national Christmas anti drink drug driving operation that starts on Wednesday 1 December 2021.    

Officers are sending a clear message to anyone who may consider driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs that there is a high risk of being stopped and arrested.

Drink and drug drivers may also find their arrest featured online as Warwickshire Police will be publicising anonymised details on social media throughout the campaign.

As part of the enforcement activities, officers are also encouraging the public to report the details of suspected drink or drug drivers over the Christmas period.

This is because in 2020 despite lockdown, 3 people (3 in 2019) in Warwickshire lost their lives as the result of a collision where drink or drugs was a factor. Over the same period 24 people (30 in 2019) in Warwickshire suffered serious, often life changing injuries due to a collision involving someone getting behind the wheel under the influence of drink or drugs.

Our team will be completed random checks over the coming weeks in the town centre.
