Surrey Police have launched their annual summer crackdown on drink and drug drivers across the county.

Last year, 416 drivers on Surrey’s roads under the influence of drink or drugs were arrested and charged.

From 1 August to 1 September, Police will have extra resources dedicated to preventing and detecting incidents of such driving.

In line with previous campaigns, anyone arrested during this period and then convicted, will be identified on their website and social media channels as a deterrent.

Chief Inspector Michael Hodder, of the Surrey and Sussex Roads Policing Unit, said: “It cannot be said enough how much drink and drug-driving can ruin lives.”
