Police carried out a drink drive campaign over the Christmas period.

Over 200 people were caught drink driving in Lancashire during the police’s Christmas drink drive campaign.

A total of 17,400 tests were administered throughout the month of December with 202 people, or 1.2 per cent, failing the test and 19 people, or 0.1 per cent, refusing to provide a specimen.

This means the total number of people who failed or refused the test was 221 or 1.3 per cent. During the Christmas 2012 campaign, 18,964 tests were administered with 281 people, or 1.5 per cent, failing the test or refusing to provide a specimen.

The annual crackdown on drink driving saw high-profile enforcement activity take place around the clock across the county. Call police on 101 to report someone drink driving.
