  12. World Cup booze warning to drivers

    Whether it be a case of celebration or commiseration, police in South Yorkshire are urging football fans not to drive after taking alcohol or drugs.

    Drink drive test

    With many pubs and venues showing live matches, South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership is reminding road users not to mix drink or drugs with driving or riding.

    As well as warning people about the physical consequences of collisions, they're also stressing the lasting impact that drink and drug driving has, both on the lives of victims and their families, and on the drivers themselves.

    Quote Message: Celebrations can quickly turn into commiserations if you are stopped by the police. You may be banned from driving, have points added on your licence, face an unlimited fine, or even imprisonment. This will mean increased insurance costs, potential job loss and even restrictions on travel to other countries such as the United States." from Joanne Wehrle Safer Roads Manager at SYSRP

  13. Police say football match costs aren't 'sustainable'

    A leading police officer in South Yorkshire says the community at large is subsidising rich football clubs.

    Police at football match

    Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts is also the National Police Chiefs' Council lead on football policing.

    He says the cost of policing matches needs to be looked at because clubs aren't required by law to pay enough towards match-day crowd control and deploying officers on roads near grounds:

    Police costs graphic

    Mr Roberts says football clubs make a great deal of money, whereas police resources are finite, meaning there are fewer officers to deal with non-footballing issues.
