Middle-aged women are most likely to be prosecuted by police this Christmas for drink driving.


Figures show that out of all driving convictions carried out by women, more than a third are for drink-driving committed by those aged 45-60.


For men, drink drivers are more likely to be younger, with a third of offenders being between 25-34 years old. Drink driving is the least common amongst those aged 19 and under, and the oldest demographic, the 61 – 99 age group. But, over the Christmas period, all age groups will have to be careful as more police will be taking to the roads. Many forces run drink driving campaigns through to January to catch those who may be over the legal limit for both alcohol and drugs.
