Festivalgoers targeted with ‘morning after’ drink-drive message
Road safety teams are being invited to participate in the latest ‘Morning After’ campaign which will deliver a drink drive reminder to those attending music festivals, weddings, BBQs and parties during the coming summer months.
Founded in 2006, the Morning After campaign reminds motorists that it takes a lot longer for alcohol to pass through the body than most people think, and highlights the risk of unwittingly driving while still over the limit the morning after drinking alcohol.
Simon Rawlings, Morning After campaign manager, said: “There are dozens of music festivals all over the UK during the summer months, many of which draw huge crowds".
“Many festivalgoers are likely to consume large quantities of alcohol over two to three days and then quite possibly drive home the morning after the event. But it’s not only people attending festivals who are susceptible to morning after drink driving; during the summer months large amounts of alcohol are often consumed at weddings, BBQs and evening parties".
