Police warn motorists and cyclists
2:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
A STARK warning has gone out from police after six motorists were arrested for drink-driving over the weekend.
All six have been charged and are due to appear before Worcester Magistrates’ Court either later this month or in early September.
Four of the arrests followed accidents on Saturday, August 17, in Malvern, Worcester and Droitwich.
In addition to those arrested and charged with drink driving at the weekend, another man was charged with being drunk in charge of a pedal cycle after he was arrested in Lower Howsell Road in Malvern in the early hours of Saturday.
Chief Inspector Mark Steele, from Worcester police station, said: “Many of these arrests happened following collisions and people need to understand the risks they are taking by getting behind the wheel of a car – or even getting on their bicycle – after consuming alcohol.
“You are putting yourself and other road users in danger and we will not tolerate such irresponsible and selfish behaviour.
“We are routinely stopping and catching drink-drivers and we hope that the action we have taken against a number of drivers over the weekend serves as a strong deterrent to anyone thinking of drinking and driving in our force area.”
