Fewer motorists were caught drink driving the festive period.
Cambridgeshire police revealed 75 people were arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol during a month-long crackdown in December.
The annual campaign snared 21 fewer people than in 2013’s total of 96.
Inspector Mark Rogers said: “It is extremely encouraging to see such a significant drop in the number of drivers caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“It is clear our message is getting out to the majority of road users. However there are still a number of motorists who continue to think it is acceptable to get behind the wheel when they are over the limit.
