THINK! launches summer drink drive campaign
A new £1.5m THINK! campaign reminds motorists that a drink in the sun this summer could put them behind bars.
Jim Fitzpartick, road safety minister, said: "Drink driving is not just a problem at Christmas - each summer almost 200 people don't make it home to their families because of drink driving.
"With warm weather and long summer evenings motorists might end up drinking when they hadn't planned to, but that doesn't mean we have to drive home.
"Be under no illusions, drink drivers are treated like any other criminal - they face giving blood and DNA samples and being locked in a police cell. They'll also get a minimum 12 months driving ban, criminal record and large fine - and risk losing their job."
