Vital drink driving messages are not getting through to women, resulting in levels of drink driving amongst females not falling at the same rate as for men.
So says the Police Federation at its annual conference in Bournemouth as it also called for the drink-drive limit to be lowered.
Although more men than women are caught drink driving, women’s convictions are increasing as a proportion of all convictions – up by 17% – whilst male rates are falling – down by 24%.
