Bedford driving instructors welcome fall in drink driving arrests
Following our post the other day about the drink driving statistics in Northampton, we have now seen the arrest figures for the Bedford 2012 drink driving campaign. During the Christmas 2012 campaign, which ran from December 1st to January 1st, there were a total of 80 arrests, down 11 from the previous years campaign.
Our driving instructors in Bedford feel that this is due to people finally realising the dangers of drink driving, or simply that people are aware of the penalties of being caught. Either way, it certainly helps to make us all feel safer on the roads.
It’s worth remembering though that some people still continue to drive the morning after having had alcohol, forgetting that they have to allow time for the alcohol to leave their system. It’s something that we make sure all of our students understand during their driving lessons in Bedford.
For any questions abut the campaign and statistics, or for any other questions regarding driving lessons in Bedford, call us on 0845 676 9870.
