2011 Festive Drink Drug Drive campaign launches at Holyrood

Stripe was brought on board by the Scottish Government and Road Safety Scotland to help launch the 2011 Festive Drink Drug Drive campaign in association with the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS) and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS).

This year’s campaign, which was launched outside the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood, will see the introduction of tough new measures targeting first time offenders who provide a sample for analysis, which is three times the legal limit or more and also those offenders who refuse to provide a sample for analysis without a reasonable excuse. As well as receiving a criminal record, a substantial fine and an automatic 12 month ban, these drivers may now have their vehicle seized and, on conviction, have it taken away – for good.
