Drivers who get behind the wheel drunk risk losing more than their licence, the Government has warned.
The Government is urging drivers to consider the "snowball effect" of a drink driving conviction ahead of the Christmas party season, as part of their latest THINK! campaign.
People who drive as part of their job would be particularly at risk if they were caught drunk behind the wheel, as they would be denied access to millions of jobs which use criminal record checks to assess potential employees.
These jobs include professional driving jobs, teachers, care workers and jobs in banks and finance.
