If anyone thinks that driving whilst impaired has no consequences then they should take a look at the vehicle that is being used in this display. There can be no more powerful a reminder that impaired driving costs lives and ruins many others. If you are going out this Christmas and drinking then please ensure you have a means of getting home that does not involve you doing the driving.
On the Isle of Wight alone we have already had one positive breath test on and one unfit to drive. If you ignore our advice we will catch you, you will lose your licence and you will be fined.
– Steve Apter, the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service Chief Fire Officer
We fully support Hampshire Constabulary’s drink and drug driving campaign this year.
I cannot begin to imagine both the physical and emotional suffering the Staley family went through following the collision and they deserve the upmost respect and credit for supporting the campaign by allowing their actual vehicle involved that night to be displayed. Hopefully lots of people will see the display in Newport, Ryde and Cowes, see the consequences of drink or drug driving and think it really is not worth the risk.
A powerful Hampshire Constabulary display is touring the Isle of Wight over the next week as part of the force’s Drink and Drug Driving campaign.
The crashed car display is particular emotive for people on the Island-as the car belongs to the Staley family from Newport.
The vehicle was decimated when it was hit by a driver who was two-and-a-half times over the drink/drive limit and had been smoking cannabis. Ten-year-old Evey Staley was killed in the collision-which also seriously injured her parents Penny and Neal.
The driver of the car, Robert Blakely is serving 10 years in prison.
The crashed vehicle display starts at Newport on December 5.

This is a very unusual crime in the amount of violence used and occurred in a quiet residential area. I would also like to appeal to anyone with private CCTV in the area to speak to us as this may help with our enquiries into identifying the suspect"
