Driving under the influence of drugs

We have recently had an increased number of drivers in and around Horfield driving under the influence of drugs, specifically Cannabis. We would like to remind the public that driving under the influence of drugs is illegal and greatly increases your chances of seriously harming yourself or others. This is a serious criminal offence and we are dealing with each individual very robustly.

    There has been a continued proactive approach to this priority, over the past few months a number of vehicles have been stopped and roadside drugs testing has been carried, this has resulted in a number of persons failing these tests.

    Offenders have been dealt with robustly and are awaiting court appearances.

    Please report this via 101 or online at Report | Avon and Somerset Police
