A dozen north-east motorists were stopped in a police crackdown on drink-drivers during a single week in July.
Among those stopped by officers was a 32-year-old man who was allegedly twice the legal alcohol limit in the North Meadows area of Oldmeldrum.
A 71-year-old man was allegedly five and a half times the legal limit in the Bridge of Don area, and a 55-year-old woman was allegedly almost six times the limit when she was stopped in the Torry area of Aberdeen.
A 46-year-old man was allegedly four and a half times the legal limit when he was detected on the A90 near Stonehaven, and a 50-year-old man was allegedly three and a half times over the limit when stopped in Blackburn.
All 12 of the alleged offences took place between July 26 and 31.
Road Policing Sergeant Pete Henderson said: “Driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs has a clear impact on a person’s ability to drive and can have life changing or fatal consequences.
“For those who are detected and charged in relation to drink or drug-driving it is a minimum 12-month driving ban, a criminal record, a substantial fine and the possibility of a prison sentence.”
