Think before you take the wheel

With Christmas fast approaching Staffordshire Roads Safety partnership have sent out a message today urging people to think before taking the wheel this Christmas.

I would like to second this. Drink driving accounts for nearly one in six of all deaths on the roads and at this time of year, the abundance of parties and family celebrations can lead to people being over the legal limit.

The penalties for drink driving are steep and the only safe option is not to drink at all or take drugs if you are driving. Leave your car at home and take a taxi or bus and most of all have a safe and enjoyable Christmas.
