Drink drive accident figures have increased for first time in ten years
Because of lowered police presence on our roads, drivers think they can avoid being caught. 3,450 drivers failed their breath tests after an accident in 2015. This figure shows an increase from 2014, where 3,227 were found to be over the drink drive limit. Figures from the DFT had been showing a fall year on year from a high of 6,397 in 2015.
