Crackdown on drink-drivers; COPS NAME AND SHAME THE MIDLAND MOTORISTS WHO HAVE BEEN CHARGED.

Byline: Brett Gibbons Staff Reporter brett.gibbons@trinitymirror.com

POLICE have named dozens of motorists arrested on suspicion of drink-driving during the run-up to Christmas.

A West Midlands Police campaign, launched on December 1, pledged to name and shame drivers suspected of getting behind the wheel under the influence of drink or drugs.

A conviction could lead to a PS5,000 fine, a 12-month driving ban and a criminal record.

Drink-driving related offences can carry prison sentences of between three months and 14 years.

Inspector Greg Jennings, from West Midlands Police Force Traffic Unit, said: "It is never acceptable to get behind the wheel when under the influence.

"Last year the campaign proved successful in raising awareness of the risks posed by drinkdriving.

"Therefore, we have decided to again name everyone who has been charged with drink or drug driving offences in a bid to make people think twice before acting recklessly.

"If convicted of offences it can cost people their livelihoods and seriously affect their day-to-day lives - and relationships - if they lose their licence.

"Seeing people's names here makes it all the more real, and if one person is deterred from taking to the road after a night out on the tiles as a result of our messages then it is worthwhile as far as we are concerned."
