Almost 200 people were charged with drink and drug driving offences across West Yorkshire in December last year.

And police have now released a list of those charged with the offences, including details about their age, gender, town or city the driver is from.

It is part of West Yorkshire Police’s new drink driving campaign, which is urging people to ‘dob in a drink or drug driver’.

In 2014, police charged 183 people with drink and drug driving offences.

Officers arrested 35 people in Wakefield, 26 people in Kirklees and 12 people in Calderdale.

The most common age range of those charged was between 25 and 34-years-old.

Police also carried out 1,273 roadside breath tests during December last year.

Insp Joanne Field, of the roads policing unit, said: ‘‘Driving while under the influence of drink or drugs is always a significant danger, but at Christmas the risks are even more prevalent with darker nights, bad weather and sadly, more people taking the risk by drinking or using drugs and then getting behind the wheel.

“We are asking people to consider the real impact of those they see or know regularly drinks or uses drugs before driving and have made it easier than ever to ‘dob in a driver’.

“Each year we stop hundreds of people who are clearly not in a fit state to drive through drink or drugs.

“The 2015 campaign is about hammering home the message that on a daily basis people across West Yorkshire are risking their and other people’s lives and that drink or drug driving has extremely serious consequences.”

A conviction for driving while under the influence of drink and drugs will lead to a criminal record, a driving ban of at least a year and a fine up to £5,000.
