A new ‘Don’t drink and drive’ campaign is being introduced throughout August and September. Croydon Council is enforcing the campaign.

The ‘Drinking? Don’t drive!’ message is being broadcast around the borough on roadside signs, beer mats, on the sides of taxis and on pavements outside many bars and pubs.

Councillor Simon Hoar, cabinet member for community safety and public protection, said: "The bright yellow pavement stencils are impossible to miss and are strong reminders not to take these risks.

"Statistics and surveys show that fewer drink-driving accidents are happening than several years ago – and that is largely due to the ongoing success of campaigns such as this one."
