WEST Yorkshire Police made 126 arrests during a crackdown on drink and drug driving.

The campaign, in support of a National Police Chiefs' Council initiative, ran for 13 days.

Of the West Yorkshire arrests, 84 were for drink driving and 42 for drug driving.

Inspector Chris Robinson, from the West Yorkshire Police roads policing unit, says: "Driving while impaired, whether due to alcohol or drugs, puts yourself and other road users at serious risk.

"We are committed to making our roads safer by ensuring that those who choose to drive while unfit have their licences taken away.

"While we have highlighted this recent enforcement campaign, the reality is that our officers arrest people on a daily basis for drink and drug driving offences. Too many people still think it is OK to take the risk.

"We need people to think about their own fitness to drive, as well as others, and encourage family and friends to find another way home if they've been drinking or taking drugs.

"If you witness someone getting behind the wheel who you believe to be over the drink-drive limit or under the influence of drugs, then please report it."
