Report a drink driver: text DRINK (or) DRUG to 80800

2 min read

Lincolnshire Police are promoting the launch of a summer drink and drug drive campaign.

This is part of the national campaign working directly with officers from the regional forces as part of theEast Midlands Operational Support Service (EMOpSS).

You will be able to report a drink or drug driver using a short code SMS text service.

Simply text the word DRINK (or) DRUG to 80800 with details of:

  • Who the person is and/or the vehicle registration
  • Where the person is or will be drinking
  • When the person is likely to drive

We will use the information to stop, arrest and process the driver through the courts.

This is only to be used for non-emergency cases.

If you see a drink/drug driver actually driving, please treat it as an emergency and call 999.

Drivers are reminded that we will be carrying out roadside checks at all times of the day, including the mornings, and now carry drug testing kits so drivers can be tested accurately at the roadside for drugs.
