DRINK driving on the Isle of Wight during December looks set to drop by around a third compared with last year.
In figures revealed today (Monday) Hampshire police said between December 1 and December 29, 12 Islanders were arrested on suspicion of drink driving as part of the It's Not Worth The Risk campaign — last year police arrested 19 people during the whole of December as part of the Smashed campaign.
Police have arrested 194 people across Hampshire and Isle of Wight area so far this December — made up of 167 male drivers and 29 female, with the oldest being 82 years old and the youngest 17 — an increase from 174 arrested at the same time last year.
Last year's campaign led to a 15 per cent drop across the whole area in drink driving arrests.
The final number of arrests this year is due to be revealed later this week.
