Merseyside Police have released figures for ‘Operation Limit’ a force response to tackling drink/drug drive offences. During August 2023 there was an enhanced policing operation across Merseyside targeting drink and drug drivers in support of Vision Zero.

Inspector Gavin Dixon from the Matrix Roads Policing Department said: “Last year 2315 people were injured in road traffic collisions in Merseyside. Of these, 471 people were seriously injured and sadly 23 people lost their lives. The vast majority of these collisions are avoidable, and Merseyside Police continue to work with partners towards achieving Vision Zero”.

Statistics for the summer campaign show there were a total of 374 arrests – 114 drink drive, 249 drug drive and 11 drivers failing to provide a sample.
