'Own Goal' in Bracknell
Bracknell’s road safety team staged an ‘Own Goal!’ World Cup drink drive event in Bracknell town centre on 17 June – the day before England's second match.
Tina Housego, RSO, said: “We timed the event to catch college students, business people and the general public over the lunch period.
“To get the message out we ran a free draw based on answers provided in the campaign leaflet with the winner receiving £25 HMV vouchers. We also handed out whistles and football tags.”
35 road safety teams have supported the ‘Own Goal!’ campaign to help football fans avoid a World Cup drink drive conviction.
The campaign includes a website giving guidance about how long it can take for alcohol to pass through the body. Other campaign resources include posters, leaflets and beer mats.

New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
