Both papers have “vowed” to name and shame those who are convicted of drink-driving and publish their names, full details and pictures as part of a crackdown on the offence throughout December.
Last year more than 4,600 drivers were breath-tested in Norfolk and Suffolk in December, with more than 180 providing positive readings.
Said Nigel: “There is no hiding place for people who might well kill or seriously injure others for the sake of a few extra drinks.
“For another year the EDP is supporting the police in this worthwhile campaign and will gladly name and shame those who break the law.”
Chief Insp Chris Spinks, head of the Norfolk and Suffolk roads policing team, added: “We repeat the message every year but we still find drivers willing to risk their own lives and the lives of others by drinking and driving.
“We know that driving under the influence impairs your judgment and makes your reactions slower, increasing the chance of being involved in a collision, and is one of the ‘fatal four’ factors that have been shown to contribute to collisions where people have been killed or seriously injured.
“However, there are still some who get behind the wheel after drinking or drug-taking.”
