Which Regions are Pushing the Limit Around Christmas?


We all know drink driving is an issue over the festive season, so to help combat the problem, Jennings Motor Group has launched a useful resource to aid people in understanding what they are legally able to do, to stop someone they believe is about to drink and drive.

Dale Gillespie, digital marketing manager at Jennings Motor Group, said:

“The issue around drink driving around the festive period is covered every year; however, the shocking statistics make it all the more real. We want to ensure you know exactly how much this problem is affecting the whole of the UK.


“If you are in this situation yourself, please remember to find a designated driver, leave your keys at home, or book a taxi. The money spent on that journey is drastically minute in comparison to how negatively your life could change being involved in a drink driving accident.”

The study revealed the top 10 locations around the UK with the highest number of December arrests, shown below. Check out the infographic for more information.
