What is up with these young drivers nowadays. Drugged up to their eyeballs, with no respect for other road users or pedestrians. Scum! Certainly don’t remember any of my mates being done for drink driving. Especially when we were their age. We respected the fact we could drive & left the vehicles at home when socialising. But of course, these numb skulls don’t socialise! They meet their dealers in some quiet road, then sit up the Downs inhaling their dodgy purchase. Glad they got caught & hope nobody was injured by their total disregard for human life.

mandatory 10 year bans for any first drink/drug driving offences . Second conviction life time ban . Third time 12 months imprisonment . mindless selfish people who show utter contempt for others. The magistrates need to toughen up and punish not only the above but also any others who break the law and think they can get away with it.
