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

The Scottish Government and Police Scotland launched their Festive Drink Drive campaign, pointing out that 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 for drink drivers in Scotland - no matter how little over the limit a driver may be, in the eyes of the law they are still a criminal.
