Seven people were arrested for drink-driving in Crawley, Mid Sussex and Horsham tonight, police said.
A spokesman for Crawley Police said the ‘staggering’ arrests were made in just two hours.
Speaking on Twitter tonight, the spokesman said: “In the past two hours we’ve arrested a staggering seven people for drink driving in Crawley, Mid Sussex and Horsham.
“We’re happy to lock them up all day long but this figure in such a small time frame is hugely disappointing. Suspect a drink driver? Call us – 14 cells left.”
Sussex Police launched its Christmas crackdown on drink and drug-drivers yesterday (December 1).
The annual campaign, which runs until January 1, aims to crackdown on drivers who drink too much or take drugs before getting behind the wheel.
