Fleet Safety Forum launches drink/drug driving campaign

Friday 28th May 2010

The Fleet Safety Forum is calling on fleets to ensure their drivers aren’t under the influence of alcohol or drugs with a new campaign, ‘Face Facts’.
The Fleet Safety Forum is a division of Brake, the road safety charity. Fleet managers can order a poster and e-guidance campaign pack alerting drivers and managers to the dangers of drink and drug driving, and explaining how to identify and prevent drink and drug driving in fleets.
The poster, ‘Face Facts’, shows a driver’s face split in half - one side unaffected by drugs or alcohol and the other exhibiting the ‘tell tale’ signs.

The poster has been produced with sponsorship from the drug screening and testing company, Dtec International. It is the first in a series of new posters that will raise awareness of the seven ‘golden rules’ of Brake’s Pledge2DriveSafely.
Brake says its research shows at-work drivers are a high-risk group for drink and drug driving. More than twice as many at-work drivers admit to drinking three or more units of alcohol before driving compared with other drivers. And 33% of at-work drivers admit to driving first thing after having drunk a lot of alcohol the night before, compared to 21% of other drivers.
Contact Brake on 01484 559909 for more information or to order the poster.
