DRINK-DRIVE figures out this week reveal a drop in the number of motorists caught under the influence while behind the wheel.
Derbyshire police released the results of their Christmas anti-drink drive campaign which ran between December 1 and 31.
The campaign saw officers conducted 895 breath tests on drivers across the county.
Out of those, 104 people (11 per cent) gave a positive test, the driver refused to take the test or the driver failed to provide a sample.
In 2010, officers conducted 656 tests and of those 105 people (16 per cent) gave a positive test, the driver refused to take the test or the driver failed to provide a sample.
During the campaign Crimestoppers offered a reward of up to £1,000 to anyone who called the charity to report a drink-driver if the information lead to an arrest and charge.
Twenty-eight people called Crimestoppers although every caller declined the offer of a reward. Ten people called the charity during the 2010 campaign.Follow @csabian
