Glasgow partnership launches ‘none for the road’
The Go Safe Glasgow Road Safety Partnership has launched a new drink drive publicity campaign to tie in with the change in the law in Scotland.
On 5 December the drink drive limit in Scotland was reduced from 80mg/100ml blood/alcohol to 50 mg/100ml.
To raise awareness of the dangers of drink driving and the new lower limit Glasgow City Council's Road Safety Unit is distributing posters, beermats and coasters into clubs, pubs and public car parks across the city to remind drivers that "none for the road" is the only safe option.
The partnership has also produced a film to demonstrate the reality and consequences of drinking and driving.
The film tells the story of a young couple drinking together in a pub. They discuss the new drink drive limit, and one decides not to have any more to drink while the other opts for a nightcap. Both drive the following morning, with very different outcomes.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
