Police are offering a cash reward to people who report drivers who they know have got behind the wheel after drinking.

Derbyshire Constabulary is working with Crimestoppers for the force’s annual festive drink-drive campaign, which runs until 1st January.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and charge of a drink-driver.

Posters will be displayed in pubs and clubs across the county asking people to report anyone they see getting behind the wheel after drinking.

Chief Insp Steve Wilson, head of roads policing in Derbyshire, said: “This time of year is one of celebration for many including work parties and especially with family and friends. Our message is simple – if you are having a drink don’t drive.

“Our campaign is very much intelligence led and by working with Crimestoppers it will allow us to target those who persistently drink and drive rather than conducting mass-testing.

“We are determined to make our roads safer and this starts by removing those individuals who recklessly drink and drug drive on our roads.”

To report a drink-driver contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
