Wokingham Christmas anti-drink driving campaign0
Wokingham Borough Council will be holding two anti-drink drive events, at Wokingham Market Place on Wednesday December 4, 2013 from 10am to 3pm and Woodley Precinct on Wednesday December 11, 2013 from 11am to 3pm, to raise awareness of the gamble that drivers take when drink driving and the penalties they risk depending on the choices they make.
This year, the council’s campaign highlights risks of driving under the influence of alcohol this Christmas, with a gambling concept to grab the attention of young drivers, particularly young men aged between 17 and 29-years-old. The campaign focuses on the possible consequences of their actions when they make the decision to consume alcohol over the legal limit.
The council’s road safety team, along with a road safety constable, will be handing out freebies, providing advice and information. There will also be drink drive themed quizzes, non-alcoholic cocktails and beer goggles* demonstrations to find out if the public really knows the facts about the effects of alcohol and the consequences of a drink driving conviction.
