POLICE breathalysed 656 drivers across the county during their December drink drive campaign.
One hundred and fifteen motorists gave either a positive test, refused to take the test or failed to provide a sample.
Officers carried out the tests between Thursday December 1 and Saturday December 31.
Chf Insp Steve Wilson said: “Our campaign was very much intelligence-led, allowing us to target drivers who persistently drink-drive rather than conducting mass-testing.”
Police stopped a 21-year-old man in Ilkeston and breathalysed him after a tip off.
He gave a positive test and was arrested and later charged.
Chf Insp Wilson added: “I am dismayed that so many people disregarded police advice by drink-driving and posing a risk to other road users.”
