Police warn taxi drivers of “shame and ruin” of drink and drug driving

Merseyside police have shared details of the number of arrests of taxi drivers for drink or drug driving in the county in the past 12 months and are reminding cabbies of the serious implications of convictions.

Latest figures from the force show more than three arrests per day on average, prompting a reminder to taxi drivers in Merseyside of the effects of a drink or drug driving conviction on their family life and opportunity to earn.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “We’d like to remind everyone to think for a minute about the effects a drink and drug driving conviction will have on you and your family, the shame and ruin that it can bring. Do not think that you won’t get caught. Our officers conduct roadside tests, morning, afternoon and evening and we arrest countless drivers every month throughout the year. Don’t chance it – if you’re driving, it’s better to have none for the road.”
