“Not all drink-drivers this Christmas will be young men” – that is the message from Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies as both forces prepare to launch their winter campaigns.
This is in support of the national drink-drive operation, reminding people that it is not always the ‘the usual suspects’ that drink and drive over the festive period.
The campaign, which was first launched in West Yorkshire in 2016, illustrates deliberate stereotype characters to challenge the public perception about those who they think may be drink-driving this December and reminds people not to drive after drinking alcohol.
The festive crackdown, which officially launches on 1 December and runs until 1 January, tackles those driving under the influence of drink or drugs and will see officers in both counties carrying out extra patrols and roadside checks. Any driver who is stopped due to concerns over the manner of their driving, a vehicle defect, or is involved in a collision, will be breathalysed.”
