Chance to ask questions about drink-driving

Representatives of Sussex Police, South East Coast Ambulance Service and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service are keen to answer questions from members of the public about anything relating to drink or drug driving and the aftermath.

What do you think about the naming of people charged with drink drivers?

How easy is it to treat a patient involved in an accident who has been drinking?

Have you ever wondered exactly what happens at the scene of a crash?

Between 12.30pm and 2pm on Wednesday December 18, Chief Inspector Natalie Moloney from Sussex Police, Tim Fellows from the ambulance service and Justin Goodchild from the fire service will take your questions through the police website.

You can email them in advance to stephanie.breeds@sussex.pnn.police.uk or submit them on the day and watch them being answered live by visiting www.sussex.police.uk/whats-happening/drink-driving.

On the evening of Tuesday December 17 road policing officers will be tweeting live from roadside checks about how the operation is going.

From 9pm to midnight you can follow the updates and ask questions by following the hashtag #drinkordrive.
