A new drink drive campaign has been launched across the region. The Spring drink-drive campaign will run throughout March.

It's being backed by a national advertising campaign - and is targeting the those people who think it's acceptable to drive after a few drinks.

The consequences of being caught driving under the influence are a fine of up to £5,000, a minimum 12 month driving ban and a criminal record. Not to forget the possible fatal consequences if you are involved in a collision.
