THE DANGERS OF drink-driving should be clear to most road users, but police in the UK have released new footage to hammer home the message.

In the video, taken on a dashcam by a member of the public, a driver can be seen swerving between lanes, braking erratically and driving without lights on.

He eventually crashes into a parked vehicle on the side of the road, flipping his own car over.

Luckily, nobody was injured in the incident on 9 May this year.

When police arrived, they found the driver to be three times over the legal limit. He was disqualified from driving for over two years.
