Potential Dangers of Drink or Drug Driving

Alert message sent 01/12/2021 10:33:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police

Dear Citizen,

We're again reminding people of the potential cost of drink or drug driving this December.

Throughout the month, the Force will be releasing a series of videos of real incidents, showing the impact of drink or drugs on people’s ability to drive. The Roads Policing Unit will also be tweeting details of all arrests for drink or drug driving this month using the hashtag #WYPTheCost.

On 11 December, there will be a roads safety event held in City Park, Bradford, where members of the public can learn about the potential dangers of drink or drug driving with West Yorkshire Fire Service giving demonstrations of extracting a ‘casualty’ from a scrap car. There will also be a fire appliance, ambulance, police cars, a police motorbike and a police off-road bike, as well as other kit for members of the public to look at.

For the first time in West Yorkshire, there will be court rooms at both Leeds and Bradford Magistrates Courts specifically for drink drive cases arising from the December drink drive campaign. The first of these is on Thursday, 23 December, meaning that any drivers caught drink or drug driving in the next couple of weeks could be facing a driving ban and fine by Christmas.
