Cornwall Cracks Down On Drink Driving
7:03am 22nd November 2014
Cornwall and Devon could lead calls for zero-tolerance over drinking and driving.
The man in charge of policing here says he wants to push for it.
Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg is heading up a new front in the battle against booze related crime.
Statistics show it costs health and policing £11 billion pounds a year.
Now Mr Hogg is heading up national efforts to cut the bill.
It will look at things like minimum pricing and better laws.
He said: "We already have common ground on wanting to get high strength alcohol off the streets, strengthening the government resolve on minimum unit pricing, we want to work with supermarkets, it may be we would look to lobby the government on zero tolerance in relation to driving.
"I feel very optimistic that with the strength of the lobby we can make a real difference to the damage being caused by the over indulgence in alcohol."7:03am 22nd November 2014
