Two men in a pub - THINK campaign asset

A mate doesn’t let a mate drink drive

The festive period is often a time for catching up with loved ones and being merry. People may indulge a little more than usual but it is important to remember to drink responsibly and look after one another.v

The Department for Transport’s THINK! Campaign has launched a new initiative focused on giving people the confidence to speak up if their friend is considering driving under the influence of alcohol.

Male drivers aged 17-24 are over-represented in drink driving related casualties. This video shows how to Pint Block your friend if they are in danger of drinking and driving. 

Drivers ultimately have the responsibility but you can be empowered to help your friends avoid making decisions with dangerous consequences with the ‘Wrong Side of the Road’ programme offered by the Department for Transport and Diageo.
