Enjoy a Christmas to remember for the right reasons 01 Dec 2017

With the Christmas party season in full swing, an advertising campaign from the Scottish Government and Road Safety Scotland (part of Transport Scotland) gives a clear message – don’t drink and drive.

More than 20,000 drivers are stopped by the police every month. Even if you are slightly over the limit, in the eyes of the law, you are a drunk driver and a criminal - there’s no grey area.

Michael Matheson, Cabinet Secretary for Justice said: “Unfortunately there is a persistent minority of drivers who continue to ignore the law. These people are not only risking their own lives and licenses but are risking the safety of other road users and pedestrians by drinking and driving.

“This campaign reinforces that drink driving is unacceptable and, if you get caught, you will get a minimum 12-month driving ban, a criminal record for a lengthy period and a substantial fine. Furthermore, a drink-driving conviction can have significant social and employment consequences. I welcome the action being taken by Road Safety Scotland and Police Scotland to tackle those who think it is okay to have just one drink and drive their car, as well as reckless road users, both of whom are breaking the law.”

Don’t risk it. Don’t drink and drive.
