A campaign has been launched to encourage the public to speak up about drink driving.

In the past year Crimestoppers received 66 calls about drink drivers in the Cambridgeshire area.

The charity is urging anyone who has information about regular drink drivers to get in contact.

East Midlands regional manager, Kiran Dhanda, said: “Too many people lost their lives last year due to drink drive incidents. But, there are still people out there who regularly drink drive and refuse to change their behaviour.

“We want to make the roads a safer place for everyone and we would urge you to give information to Crimestoppers anonymously about anyone who is regularly drink driving.

“Crimestoppers never asks for your name or personal details, we cannot trace calls or track information given online and we do not record our calls. You will not have to give a statement to police or go to court.

“We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know. By taking action you could be helping to save a life – whether it’s the driver or an innocent victim.”
