POLICE in West Yorkshire stopped more than 1,800 people on suspicion of drink or drugs driving in December.
The figures were released following the latest drink and drugs driving campaign, which ran throughout the month.
Of the motorists stopped during the campaign, 275 failed the breath test or refused to provide a sample.
Police said 133 people had since been charged with driving under the influence of drink or drugs and of those 39 have already been dealt with by the courts with all receiving at least a 12 month driving ban.
The worst case involved a Bradford man who was more than four-and-a-half times the legal limit.
Chief Insp Neil Hunter, who leads Roads Policing for West Yorkshire Police, said: “These figures show that we are stopping more people than ever on suspicion of driving whilst unfit – whether through drink or drugs.
“The message to motorists who are ignoring our warnings is that we are targeting drink or drug driving offenders across West Yorkshire 24 hours a day, seven days a week and not just during the Christmas period.”
