Thou­sands tested in 2010

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

LAST year Cam­bridgeshire po­lice ran a sim­i­lar high vis­i­bil­ity op­er­a­tion to crack down on drink-driv­ers across the city.

Dur­ing De­cem­ber 2010, of­fi­cers gave breath tests to 6,54 mo­torists in Peter­bor­ough – more than five times the num­ber tested in 2009. Mo­torists were asked to vol­un­teer to take part in the stop checks by the side of the road.

How­ever, de­spite the in­crease in the num­ber of tests, the num­ber of ar­rests for fai ling the breath test ac­tu­ally fell from 123 to 121.
