TWO more drink drivers have been convicted following Essex Police’s summer anti-drink and drug driving campaign.

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

Essex Police is publishing the details and images of people convicted to act as a deterrent to other people considering doing it.

Adam Pipe, Casualty Reduction Manager, said: “Every day we see people arrested for drink or drug driving and it is simply not acceptable.

“It is a reckless act and even a small amount of alcohol or drugs in your system can impair your ability to react behind the wheel.

“If you drink or drug drive it is only a matter of time before you’re court.

“If you know someone who drink or drug drives, let us know. Call us on 101 or CRimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Those convicted are:
Alana Clarke, 29, of Wellstye Green, Basildon.
– Arrested in Downbury Down, Basildon at 10.35am on June 17;
– Disqualified for 17 months, fined £190, and ordered to pay £30 victim surcharge and £45 costs for drink driving.

James Rixson, 30, of Bedford Road, Grays.
– Arrested in Southend Road, Grays at 10.08pm on June 17;
– Disqualified for 36 months, fined £350, and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge for drink driving.
