Latest figures show that the number of people killed in drink-driving incidents increased last year following years of declining deaths thanks, in part, to raised awareness and media coverage of the problem.

In 2012, 290 people were killed in drink-drive incidents in Great Britain, an increase of about a quarter on the previous year. A stark contrast to 2011 when deaths were at the lowest since records began in 1979.
