Torbay Christmas drink drive campaign launched
7:00am Friday 7th December 2012 in Devon
Devon and Cornwall Police, Devon Fire and Rescue Service and Torbay Council Road Safety Team are working together to promote the importance of not drinking and driving over Christmas.
Torbay Sergeant Louise Costin said: “The campaign is a Torbay initiative to crack down on drinking and driving over Christmas through both education and enforcement.
“There will be a damaged car on display with drink drive messages displayed and also the Fire simulator which members of the public can try and see firsthand how their driving is affected after consuming alcohol.
“Although prevention through education is a extremely important, there are also enforcements dates planned at various locations where drivers will be stopped and breathalysed if alcohol is apparent.
“Anyone who fails a breath test will be arrested inevitably lose their driving licence”
