Safety stickers are being used in South Yorkshire's pubs and nightclubs as part of a crackdown on drink drivers.

The stickers - which ask people: "Are you looking at a drink driver?" - have been placed on mirrors in toilets in establishments across the county, the South Yorkshire Star reported.

Last year, seven people were killed in South Yorkshire in incidents caused by drink drivers, the newspaper said.

The scheme, organised by Nottinghamshire Road Safety Partnership, has been launched amid an annual police drink driving campaign.

Some 58 people were arrested for failing breath tests or refusing to give a sample during the first two weeks of the police scheme alone.

Chief inspector Andy Charlton, head of roads policing, was quoted by the newspaper as saying: "The message to drivers is there is no hiding place. They need to ask themselves the question when they look in that mirror - is it the face of a drink driver staring back?"

Recently, Greater Manchester Police rolled out a scheme using window safety stickers to warn people on a night out about the dangers of drink-fuelled violence, Rochdale Online reported.
