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.
