Published: 28/01/2015

Flintshire County Council’s Road Safety Team has welcomed news that North Wales Police’s Christmas Anti-Drink and Drug Drive Campaign has kept road users safe. North Wales Police arrested 76 people during the recent, month long campaign. They carried out 15,627 breath tests with 76 being positive. Six people were also arrested for driving whilst under the influence of drugs. Councillor Kevin Jones, Cabinet Member for Waste Strategy, Public Protection and Leisure said: “Drink or drug driving remains a sad fact of life and it is unfortunate that some people are still willing to risk their lives and the lives of others. Flintshire County Council supports every measure taken by North Wales Police to stop anyone who drinks, or takes drugs, and then drives.” If you have information relating to someone you think is driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs, please contact North Wales Police on 101 or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.
