MOTORISTS who enjoy a pub lunch are being reminded not to drink drive.
Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire police, Julie Spence has used one of her latest podcasts to remind motorists to adhere to the law.
The warning goes out to those who enjoy a few pints at the pub at lunchtime and then choose to flout the law by getting behind the wheel.
She said: "I know that most of you would never contemplate drinking and getting behind the wheel.
"Sadly, there's a minority which continues to flout the law and put other road users in danger. It is unlikely that they will mend their ways until they have been caught and penalised or had a brush with death or serious injury.
"Please don't be tempted to join them, even when the sun is shining, it's lunchtime and the prospect of a couple of pints and a short drive home seems harmless.
