Warnings Issued After Humberside Arrests For Drink and Drug Driving

Published by Karen Liu at 6:31am 4th May 2020.

Humberside Police have issued a warning following an increase in the number of people arrested for drink or drug driving.

The force's Assistant Chief Constable, Chris Noble, said:

“Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs is reckless at the best of times, but in the current COVID-19 crisis it is even more irresponsible.

Serious and fatal road traffic collisions are regularly caused by drivers being over the limit and such behaviour poses a significant threat not only to other road users, but to the emergency services and our stretched NHS who are all involved in the aftermath of a collision.

We currently find ourselves in the situation where we need to ensure we support the NHS and emergency services, without adding additional and unnecessary pressure.

Investigations are underway for all the incidents, and our message is very simple; do not drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs as we will take action against anyone who chooses to drive whilst unfit to do so.”
