Melton motorists are being reminded of the dangers of getting behind the wheel while impaired this summer as Leicestershire Police today (June 1) launched its June drink and drug drive campaign.

The force-wide blitz will see more patrols out on the streets, with checks being made at random locations at any time of the day or night.

Chief Superintendent Chris Haward said: “Cracking down on those who get behind the wheel and are unfit to drive through drink or drugs is a year round commitment for Leicestershire Police.

“However we are very aware the summer months can present opportunities where people are tempted to drive after drinking. We would advise drivers to plan ahead by leaving the car at home, sharing a taxi or taking public transport or alternatively nominating a designated driver who is fit to drive.”
