St Helena Police are again this year launching their annual Drink-Drive Campaign.
From tomorrow, Friday 1 December 2017, this year’s campaign called ‘Drive sober or get pulled over’ will run until Sunday, 7 January 2018.
As normal, the aim of this campaign is to educate drivers and the public on the dangers and consequences of drink-driving, and to help increase their knowledge on how drinking can affect them.
Acting Inspector Tony Clingham said:
“Drink-driving poses a significant threat to road users and we aim to send out the message that these offences will not be tolerated.”
As part of the campaign, Police will be carrying out stop checks, conducting roadside breath tests and speed checks. Officers will deal with all motoring offences appropriately, in accordance with their campaign objectives.
Late night taxi providers who have come forward and are working with the Police are V2 Taxi Partners, Joshua’s Taxis, Reginald Furniss, Jeffrey Youde, CJ’s Taxi Service, Wayne Crowie’s Taxi and Charles Williams’ Taxi. People should call these services if needed.
Acting Police Sergeant, Michelle Thomas-Lawrence, concluded:
“We hope that the public will support us in this campaign as they have previously, and that they follow any advice given.”
Please be advised that all drivers stopped by the Police will be breath tested, so THINK BEFORE YOU DRINK.
