Shop drink drivers...say Dorset Police.

They're supporting the national summer drink and drug driving campaign which runs for the whole of June.

There will be early morning vehicle checks carried out by marked and unmarked police patrols.

Anyone involved in a collision will be breathalised.

As well as vehicle stop checks, police want to hear from the public if they suspect someone is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Dorset Police Traffic Inspector says ' If you see someone getting behind the wheel when they clearly had a drink, call 999. For slower time, general information, call the non-emergency number 101, or crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

As well as the risk of death, the legal consequences of being caught drink driving are extensive. They incluse a minimum 12 month driving ban, a criminal record, up to 6 months in prison and a fine of up to £ 5,000.
