The Argus: West Preston man first to be named under new drug-driving campaign West Preston man first to be named under new drug-driving campaign

A 41-year-old man has become the first person to be charged with drug-driving during Sussex Police's Christmas crackdown.

Gavin Waterer was arrested at 1.55am on Saturday after a car was stopped by police in Goring Road, Worthing.

Waterer, of Southcourt Close in West Preston, was charged with drug-driving and released on bail to appear at Worthing Magistrates' Court on January 28.

Suspected drug drivers are being tested by officers for illegal substances for the first time in Sussex this month.

As well as the charge for drug-driving, 12 more people have been named after being charged with drink-related driving offences in the county as part of Sussex Police’s festive campaign.

Gavin Waterer I hope the worry of going to court and what might happen to you makes you think twice next time.

Still think it's wrong that people accused of offences are named publicly before thay have been convicted. What if there's been a mistake and this man, or any other person, happens to be innocent.

I personally blame the greens. I don't really know why, but they need to be implicated somehow, for something or another.
