Know Someone that Drink or Drug Drives? Let Gwent Officers Know!
Officers in Gwent are urging the public to let them know, anonymously, the details of motorists that drink or drug drive by using a NEW text service launched as part of the All Wales anti-drink and drug driving campaign.
If people know someone who drink or drug drives, they can text Gwent Police 24/7, and help keep our roads safe, on a new texting service.
All that is required is the Car Registration, Make, Model, Location, Time and Driver details if known, and the number to text the information to is 07464 645 100 (this is not a free number, texts are charged at normal rate).
Operational Support Chief Inspector, Martyn Smith said: "We are committed to making the roads in Wales safer and year on year we raise awareness of the dangers of driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs through campaigns such as this one.
"The Christmas festivities and New Year are a time for enjoyment, and whilst I would encourage everyone to have a good time, it is important to reiterate, if you drink, don't drive and if you drive, don't drink - it's that simple!
"It is also important to remember that if you have a drink in the evening you can still be over the limit the following morning, and we will be conducting roadside breath tests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
"If you have any information relating to someone who may be driving after drinking or taking drugs please let us know by texting us on 07464 645 100 or report it to 101. In an emergency always call 999."
