DENBIGHSHIRE residents are being urged to speak up about drug driving.

This summer, Crimestoppers in North Wales is urging anyone with information to contact the organisation anonymously to prevent people getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs.

Drug wipe and saliva testing kits are now used to catch those who are unfit to drive after consuming drugs. This has led to an increase in convictions.

Gary Murray, regional manager for the charity, said: “We appreciate that if you’re close to someone who gets behind the wheel regularly whilst under the influence of drugs, it can be difficult to come forward. It could be a work colleague, a neighbour, or even a family member or a friend. This can explain why some people are reluctant to go to the police because of the fear of being identified.

“Drug drivers put other people’s lives at risk and your information could help prevent an accident from happening and could even help save lives.By trusting our charity with your information you’ll stay 100 percent anonymous. Always. We never take personal details and calls to our UK Contact Centre and information passed through the Anonymous Online Form cannot be traced.”

"Together we can help protect those you care about.”
