Motorists in Scotland are being reminded of the tough legal and personal consequences of drink driving this Christmas time.

Less than one in four drivers in Scotland are aware that drink driving results in a criminal record which stays with them for a minimum of 20 years.

This year’s campaign aims to raise awareness that there is no grey area - no matter how little over the limit a driver may be, in the eyes of the law they are still a criminal.

Throughout the New Year period the message is not to drink anything at all before driving as the risk of being caught is higher than ever.
