Sergeant Ben Brennan from the Kent Police’s Roads Policing Unit said: ‘We want people to have fun and enjoy the festive season but to do so safely. That means not driving at all if you have been drinking any amount of alcohol, no matter how small, or if you are impaired by prescription or illegal drugs.
‘Every year innocent motorists and pedestrians are put at risk from people who think it is acceptable to drive whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs; this campaign is about telling people it is not acceptable. We are passionate about changing bad driving behaviour on our roads to protect all those that use them. We want all the people of Kent and visitors to the county to have a safe and happy Christmas which is why we don’t make allowances for anyone driving whilst under the influence and why we have these campaigns.”
