Have your say

People are being urged again to shop drink-drivers to the police after a festive clampdown reveals that motorists are still hitting the booze and then getting behind the wheel.

December’s national drink-drive campaign was led locally by Chief Inspector Richard Hann of the Beds, Cambs and Herts Roads Policing Unit.

Figures released on Friday show that across the three forces there was a slight increase in the list of shame of motorists stopped and arrested, but in Herts the number of drivers falling foul of the test was actually down – 87 drivers were arrested compared to 127 during the same period in 2012.
