Police uses children’s toys to tell the story of a crash

Police bosses have taken a novel approach in a bid to get the message across to motorists about the dangers of drink driving this year.

They have produced a hard-hitting video telling the story of a road crash caused by a drink-driver, which leaves several people seriously injured and one dead - all told using children's toys, with the tale also told by youngsters.

Derbyshire Police enlisted the help of children to voice the dialogue, and the video is based on the real-life radio conversations that take place between the emergency services at scenes of fatal collisions.

The short video aims to illustrates the real dangers and potentially deadly consequences of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs

The short video aims to illustrates the real dangers and potentially deadly consequences of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs - and most importantly, the painful legacy such an incident has for those left behind, particularly for children, said a spokesman for the force.

Sergeant Steve Hughes, from Derbyshire Constabulary roads policing unit, said: 'The video is intended to make people sit up and take notice, so that the very clear safety message sinks in.

'If someone gets behind the wheel while drunk, they put themselves at serious risk of harm and even death, and what they have to think about is that they have family and friends who will then forever associate Christmas with their death.

'Nobody should see that as acceptable, and my hope is that people will take the message on board and help keep themselves and other road users safe.
