REVELLERS will witness the dangers of drink-driving first-hand tonight as the wreck of a car in which a woman died is displayed in Portsmouth’s Guildhall square.
Hampshire police are putting the blue Vauxhall Corsa on show throughout the county - with the permission of the 23-year-old victim’s family - as part of their hard-hitting Don’t Get Smashed campaign.
The woman - whose family wishes to remain anonymous - was less than a mile from her Hampshire home when she was involved in a late-night smash with a van.
She died instantly in the crash in November last year.
Tests later revealed she was four times the drink-drive limit.
The Safer Portsmouth Partnership - made up of police, firefighters, the council and other organisations - will also be on-hand tonight, urging people to ‘Take the Pledge’ by signing up not to drink-and-drive.
People can also take the pledge by re-tweeting the @saferportsmouth pledge board photos on social networking website Twitter or by liking and/or sharing their pledge board pictures on Facebook..
Police say 64 people were arrested on suspicion of drink-driving in the first 10 days of their annual campaign.
To report a suspected drink-driver text 80999 with details of the licence plate, where and when, direction of travel and any other information available.
