A Worthing man is among another nine motorists charged with offences as part of Sussex Police’s summer crackdown on drink and drug-driving.
Daniel Foster, 25, was arrested at 1.10 am on June 13th after officers stopped his car in South Street, Tarring, because it did not appear to have a valid MOT.
Foster, of Mulberry Lane, Worthing, was charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Worthing Magistrates’ Court on June 30th.
Also arrested in Worthing was Samuel Doman, 24, at 4.00 am on June 13th after his car almost hit a police patrol car in Offington Gardens, Worthing.
Doman, of Nepcote, Findon, was charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Worthing Magistrates’ Court on June 30th..
A total of 55 people have so far been charged with offences as part of Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police’s June drink and drug-driving operation.
As part of Operation Dragonfly, road policing unit officers are on dedicated patrols looking for offenders.
Teams are responding to tip-offs from members of the public who see someone they know has been drinking getting into a car to drive.
Stop checks are also being set up at locations across Sussex, in particular at locations where there is intelligence that there has been a history of drink-driving.
In previous campaigns, the forces have named those charged with drink or drug-driving offences that were committed during the month-long crackdown.
In addition, this year the forces will be releasing footage of convicted offenders that shows the state they were in when they got behind the wheel – and how important it is that they are banned from the roads before they hurt anyone.
