A CRACKDOWN campaign on drink and drug driving has been launched by the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership.

Its aim is to educate drivers about the dangers of drinking and taking drugs before driving and asks them to think about how to get home after a night out.

Inspector Andy Trotter said: "If you’re out partying this Christmas then please plan ahead and book a taxi, check public transport times or don’t drink.

"If you know of someone who is driving under the influence of drink or drugs then please do the right thing and call us on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously before they kill themselves or somebody else.

"Nobody wants to end up in a police car, ambulance, or in the worst instance a hearse."

The campaign was launched in Blackpool.
