100 people arrested in Lincolnshire for drink or drug-driving
Police have arrested 100 motorists for drink or drug driving during a month-long blitz on Lincolnshire's roads from December 1 to 31.
This compares with 119 people caught in the same period in 2011.
Police monitored traffic at random times and locations during the winter period to take drink-drivers off the road.
According to the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, more people are caught over the limit between 6am and 11am than in the hour before or hour after midnight.
John Siddle, communications manager at the partnership, said many people wrongly believe are fit to drive the morning after drinking.
"Eating more food doesn't help the process, it actually slows down the system," he said.
"Coffee also doesn't have any effect and neither does having a shower. The best thing to do is not to drive if you have had a drink the night before."
Twenty-four people were killed on Lincolnshire roads in drink and drug-related collisions in 2012.
