Surrey police have launched their summer campaign to tackle drink and drug driving.

The campaign aims to encourage people to step up and intervene if they suspect someone they know is driving under the influence.

They’re also advising drinkers to allow extra time if they plan to drive the next morning as they could still be over the limit.

Last summer, officers in Surrey conducted 898 breath tests and administered 83 drug tests over the campaign resulting in 130 arrests.

The campaign runs until the 7th of July.
