Eleven local drivers were among 131 caught in Wales for driving whilst on drugs during a recent month-long clampdown.

Led by Dyfed Powys Police, 199 roadside tests for drugs were administered with 131 showing positive. With 11 from 23 in the local patch.

Dyfed Powys Police also administered 2751 breath tests of which 68 were positive for alcohol, refused or failed to provide.

Dyfed Powys Police Assistant Chief Constable Pam Kelly said: “This campaign identified a significant number of motorists in Wales who continue to ignore this important legislation around drink and drug driving.

“Although this was a month-long focussed campaign, the drive to change attitudes, increase road safety and catch offenders will continue year round.

Anyone with information about people drinking and driving should call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
