Police stopped more than 350 vehicles during a day of action against drink-driving in Kettering and Oundle today (Friday, December 12).
But no arrests were made – something Northamptonshire Police has welcomed as evidence the public have taken on board messages from campaigns against drink-driving.
A Christmas initiative was launched earlier this week by the force in Kettering, to which former The Bill actor Mark Wingett – who played Det Sgt Jim Carver – gave his backing.
In the first week of December 17 people in Northamptonshire were arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.
In December 2013 a total of 103 arrests were made, while the previous year there were 128 arrests.
