Sussex Safer Roads Partnership promote Drink Or Drive campaign this summer

This Summer, we want to reduce the number of people injured on our roads through alcohol consumption. Our message, which you may have seen at Christmas, is simple:

If you’re planning to drink, don’t drive.  Or if you’re planning to drive, don’t drink – because there really is no sure way to know if you’re going to be safe on the roads even after just one alcoholic beverage.

It is a choice to drink or drive.

It’s a simple choice.  One which we wish everybody would make.

As an alternative to alcoholic drinks, why not try a Mocktail this summer? With recipes provided by the Mocktail Apprentice Project and the Department for Transport, there's a few varieties to give you some inspiration!

Some people might make the wrong choice this Summer - but you can step in to make the roads safer by reporting them directly to Sussex Police.  Either text 65999 with all of the details (location, time, vehicle make/model etc) or call 999 if someone is already driving drunk.

Working together, we can make our roads safer for everyone by reinforcing that simple choice - to drink or to drive, but never both.
