PEOPLE are being reminded about the dangers of drink-driving this summer.

The Safer Roads Partnership in Warwickshire and West Mercia will carry out roadside checks at all times of the day and night.

Vicki Bristow, communications manager for the partnership, said: "During the summer months and over the World Cup period people may be in situations where they are drinking more than usual. This campaign aims to highlight that the risk of being caught or being involved in a collision after drinking and driving simply isn’t worth it."

The immediate consequences for anyone if they are caught driving under the influence of drink and drugs include a minimum 12 month driving ban, up to six months in prison, a fine of up to £5,000 and a criminal record.
