DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE - FESTIVE CAMPAIGN



Drivers in Scotland are being reminded that ‘the best approach is none’
 as the Scottish Government and Road Safety Scotland launches its
 festive drink drive awareness campaign.
With Christmas parties in full swing, drivers are being urged to remember the
 drink drive limit and not take risks over the festive season. The chances of being
caught are higher than ever.
The campaign reinforces the message that ‘the best approach is none’, 
reminding motorists that even if you’re slightly over the limit, in the eyes of the
law you are a drunk driver.
Think about how you’re going to get home - before you head out – and don’t 
forget about any journeys you’ll make the morning after.
