Although the holiday season is over, the temptation for some people to still get behind the wheel of a car having had too much to drink is still too much for some people to resist.
Over the last four weeks, we have shared loads of videos and articles highlighting just some of the consequences of drink driving.
Some people were who read these articles and watched these videos were quite rightly shocked.
Well, a tweet shared on the West Midlands Police Twitter feed last night (5th Jan) not only shows the dangers associated with drink driving, but it also highlighted the shame associated with it as well.
A spokesperson for the unit said:
“Here’s a great example of one of the perils of drink driving.
“This lad got drunk, let his mate drive his car, failed to stop, had a short pursuit, ruined his car over speed bumps (sump smashed) & he blew chunks all over himself, the inside and the outside of his own car”.
Followers were quick to share their own ‘disgust’ at not only the actions of the males, but the state of them as well:
Next time you go out for a few drinks, if you are tempted to get behind the wheel whilst intoxicated, just remember the image of this male.
Would you want to go through the shame of being put in handcuffs whilst covered in litres of your own vomit?

We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
