Drug driving – is the high worth the low?
The Safer Essex Roads Partnership has teamed up with Essex Police to launch a new drug-drive campaign – warning offenders they are more likely to be caught than ever before.
Statistics show in the first 10 months of 2019, Essex Police made 1,491 drug drive arrests – 4% higher than the total recorded during the entirety of 2018 (1,039).
Meanwhile, there have been more arrests for drug driving than drink driving in 10 of the past 12 months – with a record 180 arrests made in April 2019.
The 2019 festive campaign
The 2019 festive campaign launches on 11 December.
