A man has been charged with being five times over the legal drink-driving limit while allegedly doing 90mph on a main north road.
The 52-year-old has been accused of speeding on the A96 at Carden near Alves in Moray as well as allegedly being over the drink drive limit.
He was charged after being stopped during Police Scotland’s summer campaign to tackle drink and drug-driving.
More than 7,400 motorists, 264 of whom police said were were caught drink and or drug-driving, were stopped between June 27 and July 10.
Of the drivers detected over the limit, 27 were still over the limit the morning after drinking.
A further 122 people failed the roadside drug test and inquiries into these incidents remain ongoing, pending forensic tests.
Deputy head of road policing Superintendent Simon Bradshaw said: “Over the course of our summer road safety campaign, one in 28 drivers were detected for drink and or drug offences and it is disappointing that we are still stopping people who drive whilst under the influence of drink or drugs.
“Our campaign this year was intelligence-led in order to target areas where we know people take unnecessary risks by drink or drug-driving.
“It is disappointing to see that despite our advice and that of our road safety partners, some people are still willing to put themselves and other innocent members of the public at risk by drink or drug-driving.”
He added: “Drink or drug-driving is known to be a contributory factor in serious injury and fatal collisions.
“By driving under the influence of drink or drugs, your actions could be responsible for causing someone’s death or your own, leaving behind grieving family and friends.
“We continue to see a number of drivers reported to us by family members, friends or colleagues and I want to thank people who had the courage to report drink or drug drivers to us.
“This information helps our officers to act quickly to stop drivers under the influence before they seriously injure or kill someone and I would continue to encourage reporting of such unacceptable behaviour to us.”
Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “It is disappointing that there continues to be a persistent minority of drivers who ignore the law and put their lives and those of others at risk, by driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“This is the first summer campaign with Scotland’s new drug-driving offence operating and the irresponsible actions of these few drivers caught under the influence is discouraging as we try to make Scotland’s roads safer.
“My message is absolutely clear – to drink and drive is utterly unacceptable and will ruin lives.
“We fully support Police Scotland’s summer enforcement campaign, which reinforces the message that the best approach is none.”
