Scottish festive drink drug check results ‘extremely disappointing’

Approximately one in 15 drivers stopped by Police Scotland over the festive period tested positive for alcohol or drugs.

The force’s festive drink and drug drive campaign ran between 1 December and 2 January and saw officers breathalyse 8,687 drivers at the roadside.

In total, 580 people were arrested for drink (395) or drug (185) driving offences – equating to just under 7%.

Of those caught drink driving, 29 drivers failed a breath test the morning after drinking.
