Eight men in the north-east were charged with drink driving offences after being stopped by police over the weekend.
Two of the men, aged 36 and 26, were due to appear in Aberdeen Sheriff Court today after failing to provide a breath specimen when asked to by police.
They were stopped in Kintore and Blackburn by officers.
A further six motorists aged between 19 and 25 were also charged for drink driving after being stopped in Laurencekirk, Peterhead, Banff, Buckie and Fraserbugh.
They are expected in court at a later date.
Inspector Ewan Innes, of the roads policing team, said the number of men stopped was “disappointing”.
He said: “Our message is clear – don’t drink and drive. It is disappointing that so many motorists have been stopped for drink driving in a relatively short period of time.
“I would urge motorists to again think ahead if they are out for an evening and having a drink that they plan their journey home.
“Arrange for a designated driver, take public transport or book a taxi.
“It is not worth risking it.”
