East Preston man drives down wrong side of Columbia Drive

 

An East Preston man is among a total of 36 people charged with offences as part of Operation Dragonfly, Sussex Police’s June drink and drug-driving operation.

Angus McKenzie, 50, was arrested at 7.00 pm on June 7th after he was seen driving on the wrong side of the road in Columbia Drive, Worthing.

McKenzie, of Normandy Drive, East Preston, was charged with drink-driving and released on bail to appear at Worthing Magistrates’ Court on June 25th.

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 and Surrey, 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.
