Drink drive trailer in Chatteris

A TRAILER promoting the force’s anonymous number to report drink drivers and those driving under the influence of drugs is in Chatteris until Thursday.

The trailer – which displays the 0800-032-0845 number – will be parked in the car park just off Furrowfields Road, as part of the campaign to encourage people to supply police with information about drink and drug drivers.

Insp Chris Skepper said: “Last year 1201 people were arrested under the influence.

“We want to use every tactic available to target those individuals and hope that by parking the trailer in the city centre, it will encourage people to report drink and drug drivers.

“The support and involvement of local communities is essential to tackle this issue, if we work together we can reduce the number of drink drivers.

“People may not feel comfortable reporting drink drivers so the confidential line is available to allow people to do this without having to leave their details.”
