Lack of police presence possible contributing factor

In an article in The Telegraph online, records from the Department for Transport show that for the first time in a decade the numbers of drink drivers involved in accidents has increased.

This is a finding the AA’s President, Edmund King, has described as ‘frightening’. It has also been suggested in the article, which is of equal concern, that this could be attributed to the visible lack of police on the roads.

A spokesperson for the AA then went on to explain that as drivers perceptions are there is a lack of police patrolling the roads, they are more likely to be able to get away with having a drink and not being caught. This also could be the same reasoning behind drivers continuing to use their mobile phones while driving.

This is something that needs to be quickly and seriously investigated, especially as soon we will be approaching the festive party season, where temptation to take risks is higher at this time of the year.
