SOUTH Yorkshire Police's Shaun Wright has issued a scathing attack on drink drivers.

It follows the announcement of the Spring 2013 Drink Drive Campaign.

Approximately ten per cent of motor collisions and 14% of fatalities are a result of drink drivers - with those under 25 said to be more likely to offend.

“The fact that these people risk not only their own lives, but the lives of others by getting behind the wheel after drinking, is the height of social irresponsibility,'' said Commissioner Wright.

“South Yorkshire Police will be targeting areas with a known record of drink driving,'' he added. ''We won’t tolerate drink drivers on the road.”
