Published at 1:40pm 17th July 2018.

64 people ignored the warnings and drunk drove on our roads during Dorset Police's summer drink drive campaign.

It comes as the force revealed an additional 11 people were charged as the World Cup neared its conclusion.

They are due to appear at courts in Poole and Weymouth in July and August.

The campaign ran from Friday 1 June 2018 to Monday 16 July 2018 to coincide with the tournament.

Throughout the operation officers requested breath tests from all drivers involved in road traffic collisions, irrespective of whether or not they suspected a drink driving offence.

Motorists were also tested during routine stop checks and if they were stopped for any other driving offence.

If you suspect someone of drink driving, please call police immediately on 999 with the vehicle registration number and direction of travel.  
To pass information about someone who regularly drives under the influence of alcohol, please visit www.dorsetroadsafe.org.uk and click on 'know a dangerous driver?'. Members of the public can also email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or call 101.
