23-29 January 2017 – NPCC week of positive action to target drivers using mobile phones
We all see drivers with their phones held up to their ears when they’re driving and many others drive and text or even live-stream their driving to ‘impress’ their mates. So the message is still not getting through.
We will be targeting these drivers in a week of action in support of the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) Campaign.
A year ago a new law came into place to address the increased number of people driving while under the influence of drugs. Since March 2015 drivers are routinely tested for drugs as well as drink at the road side.

At Humberside Police more than one in four calls received on the 999 system are inappropriate, either because they simply are not emergencies requiring immediate police assistance or they are not police matters at all.
