Reference: F-2023-01410


The number of motorists caught drink driving / under the influence of alcohol in your force area, broken down by month for 2022 and 2023 to date.

Clarification sought:
Although the data requested is held electronically by PSNI Statistics Branch, it is held collectively for both ‘drink and drug driving’. Due to the PSNI recording system, to extract the data specifically for ‘drink driving’, would require a manual trawl of all records - this process is estimated to exceed the FOI legislative cost of 18 hours.
To assist in the processing of your request, PSNI may be able to provide the data collectively for ‘drink and drug driving’. Please confirm if this is acceptable.

Clarification received:
Yes this is acceptable.
