A summer crackdown on drink driving is starting across Sussex and Surrey.
The county's police forces say they will be focusing on people who may be drink too much alcohol while watching Euro 2016 or attending events such as parties and barbecues.
"A lot of people like to have a drink when the sun is out, whether they are on holiday, having a barbecue, enjoying the UEFA European championship or just relaxing with friends. And whilst we encourage everyone to enjoy themselves and have fun in the sun, we also want them to act responsibly.
"If you're driving to an event or a venue, think about your journey home and plan ahead. Book a licensed cab, take public transport or get a lift with someone who hasn't been drinking or taking drugs. Please don't be tempted to get behind the wheel and drive yourself, even if you think you're fine.
"There is a thin line between being under and over the limit, and that's why we encourage people to drink or drive - not both, it's not worth the risk."

Police in Sussex and Surrey are reminding people of the consequences of drug driving. The warning from the Surrey & Sussex Roads Policing Unit comes on the first anniversary of a new law which made it easier for them to catch and convict people driving under the influence of drugs.
A total of 295 arrests related to drug-driving were made in Sussex between 2nd March 2015 and the 29th February 2016. Two hundred and twenty-two of those offences were for driving with a [proportion of a specified controlled drug above the specified limit.
"The consequences of drug-driving can be lethal. Substances - both legal and illegal - can seriously impair your ability to drive, which could cause a serious or even a fatal collision.
"But there's also a knock-on effect - a conviction is likely to increase the cost of your car insurance, you could lose your job and you could have difficulty travelling to other countries. Above all, drug-driving is not a risk worth taking.
"We have a duty and a commitment to keep the roads in Sussex safe, and as such we take a zero tolerance approach to drug-driving. Anyone caught committing the offence will be dealt with accordingly."
