Police have announced the move in this year’s Christmas crackdown on drink drivers. This year will see officers stopping cars both randomly and based on information about vehicles believed to be used by drink drivers
Anyone who reports their friends will be rewarded up to £200 if they’re eventually charged and prosecuted. People can make the call anonymously via Crimestoppers or they can phone police direct.
Motorway police will also be staging operations throughout the 450 miles of the Birmingham and Midlands networks.
This year will see officers stopping cars both randomly and based on information about vehicles believed to be used by drink drivers.
