A 33-year-old man was caught drink driving nearly twice over the legal limit in a festive crackdown.

Police stopped the van driver on a Glasgow road at 2.50am on New Year's Day.

He was one of hundreds of people caught in a clampdown on drink driving, launched by the Scottish Government last month.

Since December 6 road traffic officers across Scotland have tested 20,456 drivers for alcohol - more than 737 each day.

Among drivers found to be breaking the law while driving over the legal limit was a 25-year-old man was who was arrested at around 9.55pm on December 29 in Crosshouse, East Ayrshire.

A 74-year-old man was also found to be over the limit after police stopped him on December 31 at 10.30pm in Irvine, North Ayrshire.

And a few days before on December 27 at 9.45am, officers stopped a 23-year-old woman in Glasgow, who was later arrested for being over the legal drink driving limit.

The campaign was led by the Scottish Government in partnership with Road Safety Scotland, Police Scotland and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, with the support of Crimestoppers Scotland.

Head of Road Policing for Police Scotland, Superintendent Iain Murray, said: "Over the festive period, we have caught 434 drivers who were willing to put their lives, and the lives of others, at risk by driving under the influence of drink or drugs.

"They will now be dealt with like any other criminal."

In the fourth week of the campaign, 107 motorists were found to be over the legal alcohol limit and a further 13 offenders were found to be unfit to drive due to drink or drugs.

Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said: "Our priority is to save lives and our message is clear - don't ever drink and drive."
