Have your say

ALMOST 20 per cent of motorists breathalysed as part Derbyshire police’s annual Christmas anti-drink drive campaign gave a positive test, refused to take it or failed to provide a sample.

The campaign ran between December 1 and 31 during which time officers conducted breath tests on drivers across the county to crackdown on the number of people driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Officers administered 391 breath tests and of those, 79 people - almost 20 per cent - gave a positive test, involved the driver refusing to take the test or the driver failing to provide a sample.
