Campaign Launched To Crack Down on Drink and Drug Driving This Christmas

Campaign Launched To Crack Down on Drink and Drug Driving This Christmas

Throughout December, Derbyshire Constabulary, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service and Highways England will be working together in tackling those who take to the roads whilst under the influence of drink and drugs.

In Derbyshire over the last three-years, we have recorded 286 collisions, where one or more driver was impaired with alcohol or drugs. These resulted in causing 404 injured casualties, with 92 being seriously injured and 11 people were, sadly, killed in these tragic events. More »

Today, at East Midlands Designer Outlet, the three organisations have been engaging with the public, by highlighting the dangers posed by drink and drug driving and sharing their first-hand accounts of dealing with the devastating aftermath that these offences cause to families and communities.

A car from a road traffic collision, where the driver was almost three times over the drink drive limit, along with the life-saving equipment used to help those involved in such incidents, gave an all too vivid showcase of the consequences that can occur for those who choose to drink and drive.

Inspector Greg Hunt, Roads Policing Unit lead, said: "We understand that people are going to want to go out and celebrate this Christmas, especially after the previous two-year festive plans not going to plan. All we ask, is that you do so responsibly and if you've had a drink do not be tempted to drive - you'll not only be placing your life in danger, but the lives of other innocent people around you.

"My officers will stop anyone suspected of drink or drug driving and we'll be operating check-sites across Derbyshire to perform both breath and drug testing.

"Anyone caught under the influence whilst driving will risk up to six months' imprisonment, an unlimited fine and a substantial driving ban. Anyone who causes a death while drink or drug driving will face up to 14 years' imprisonment."

Station Manager Ian Snodgrass, from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, said: "As we head into the festive party season, we are once again asking people to understand the consequences of getting behind the wheel when intoxicated.

"We know people will be going out and celebrating, but we also know, and all too often see the consequences of driving under the influence of drink, or drugs. Our message is therefore quite simple, Don't Get Wrecked. If you're planning to party, ensure you have a designated driver, or get a taxi booked."

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster said: "Keeping our roads and the people using them safe is a top priority. I fully support any campaign that reminds drivers of their responsibilities when getting behind the wheel and equally punishes those who fail to heed the warnings.

"Drink or drug driving is one of the four main causes of road traffic deaths or injuries in the UK. Enforcement is part of a wider preventative approach that is employed 365 days-a-year to keep road users safe, especially at Christmas when temptation and opportunity increases.
"Despite greater public awareness and publicity of the risks of drink or drug driving, there are still too many drivers who choose to ignore the law. They are not only risking their own lives but the lives of others and for this they must face the full legal consequences of their actions."

Seen someone drink driving?

Crime Stoppers are offering a reward of up to £1000 if you can provide information on a drink or drug driver, which leads to the arrest of one or more individuals resulting in them being formally charged.

Your anonymity is 100% guaranteed. To report an incident please contact them, via their online form or over the phone on 0800 555 111.

You can also get in touch with us over our online contact form, via social media private messaging or by calling 101. If there is an immediate danger to life, always call 999.

Minor Road Traffic Offence Reports To Move Online

Minor Road Traffic Offence Reports To Move Online

The way in which you report minor road traffic collisions and offences to us is changing.

From Wednesday 1 December 2021, we will no longer take damage-only reports on the phone.

Instead, all reports will have to be made via a form on our website.

This can be found at: More »

The form is quick and easy to use, and will generate an incident number for you right away so that you can sort the next steps with your insurance company.

We are asking that any reports of road traffic collisions are now made online as this will then allow our Control Room staff to focus on emergency calls and deal with high risk incidents that require immediate attention.

If there is a genuine reason you are unable to make this report online, please contact us and an appointment will be arranged for one of our Enquiry Office staff to complete it with you.

Major road traffic incidents where there is an injury, life is at risk, or a road is blocked, should still be reported via the 999 emergency line.

Derbyshire Capture can still be used to report dangerous driving, and you can submit dashcam footage via this system. Please note, this should not be used for anything other than to report dangerous driving.

Assistant Chief Constable Michelle Shooter who oversees the work in the Control Room said: "We are always looking at ways to streamline the ways in which we work, and to keep our phonelines available for those that need us the most.

"Where possible, we are trying to move as much demand online as we can. By reporting RTCs online, the information that is provided is more accurate and would take the same amount of time for you to complete as it would for our staff.

"Where someone genuinely doesn't have internet access or family and friends to help them to complete the form, a member of our team will contact them to discuss their report further.

"Please help us reduce the demand on non-emergency lines by completing these reports from the comfort of your home and at a time that best suits you."
