The Scottish Herald report:

THE former Strathclyde police region recorded the highest number of drink-drivers over the age of 50 anywhere in the UK during the last three years, according to new figures.

Figures show that in the three years to the end of 2012, police in the Strathclyde region stopped 1469 motorists aged 50 or over who were subsequently found to be over the legal alcohol limit.

Prior to the creation of the single police force Police Scotland, the Strathclyde division was the largest force in Scotland. Greater Manchester Police recorded the next-highest level of drink drivers over-50, catching 1452 over the three-year period, followed by Hampshire on 1294.
