    Quote Message: With the weather continuing to get better, we’re at a time when drivers are more likely to risk drink or drug driving after socialising. I would ask those planning to go out for a few drinks to consider how you’re going to get home beforehand. Too many people, fail to consider the untold devastation that drink and drug driving can cause." from Police Constable Heidi Moxam Dorset Police Casualty Reduction Officer
