EIGHT people in Moray and Aberdeenshire have been reported for offences in the first week of Police Scotland’s Festive Drink Drive campaign.
The campaign was launched on Friday, December 6, and will run for four weeks over the festive period.
According to police, it will not only raise awareness of the dangers of driving after consuming alcohol, but also of ‘morning after’ offences.
Inspector Ewan Innes, of the Aberdeenshire and Moray Road Policing Unit, said: "I want to urge people to be conscious of the dangers of drinking and driving. In order to be safe, it is better not to drink alcohol at all.
"Drivers should also be aware of their suitability to drive the morning after a night out, as it is possible to still be over the drink drive limit."
