POLICE in South Derbyshire have released a hard-hitting video of roads policing officers’ first hand experiences at fatal crashes in a bid to prevent people getting behind the wheel after drinking.
The video has been produced as part of a national month-long campaign which started on Sunday to prevent drink-driving during the summer months.
It features three officers who are regularly first on the scene of serious and fatal crashes and have to break the news to families that a loved one has been seriously injured or died.
During the campaign officers will be targeting people getting behind the wheel the morning after drinking and people under the age of 25, who are often over-represented in the drink-drive figures.
There will also be a dedicated week of action running throughout the first week of the campaign.
The video can be seen by visiting the Derbyshire Constabulary YouTube channel or Facebook page.
