Government Announces Summer Drink Drive Campaign. Thoughts from a leading Burton Driving Instructor

This week, the Burton Mail detailed news that the Government has launched a £740,000 summer anti drink-drive campaign with police announcing they will carry out extra checks on motorists.  The campaign will be promoted through radio adverts, pub posters and a short online film warning motorists of the costs they face if caught.

The launch of the campaign coincides with a survey of 19,859 motorists by the AA which showed that 31 per cent of respondents were at their happiest behind the wheel and that 33 per cent relied on their car to maintain friendships.  It also revealed that, without a car, 76 per cent of 18 to 24 year olds would find it difficult to see friends and do the things they love, whilst 88 per cent would be devastated if they could not drive.

Mint Driving School welcomes the June campaign and cannot stress the importance of not mixing drinking ad driving.  Because we provide driving lessons Burton upon Trent wide, we are only too aware of the importance that young people place on driving and being caught just slightly over the legal drink-drive limit will see you facing an immediate ban, points on your license and even more expensive insurance once you qualify to drive again.  For more information on safe driving, speak to our Burton upon Trent driving instructors.  Click here to get in touch.
