Grays drink-driver named and shamed as part of police summer crackdown

Scott Thompson

ELEVEN people arrested during this summer’s anti-drink and drug driving campaign have already been convicted.

107 people were arrested during the campaign which ran between June 1 and June 30.

Anyone who is convicted of a drink or drug driving offence having been arrested during that period will have their name and picture published to the public.

Adam Pipe, Essex Police’s Casualty Reduction Manager, said: “Too many people are still drink or drug driving in Essex and it puts lives at risk.
“No-one wants to be associated with the fact they have been caught and convicted of drink or drug driving and I hope this acts as a deterrent to anyone thinking about doing it.”
