Gazette & Herald: Brake road safety charity Brake road safety charity

MOTORISTS across North Yorkshire have been urged to have “not a drop, not a drag this festive season”.

Road safety charity Brake has launched its festive campaign to help prevent drink-and-drug driving this Christmas and New Year and have also called for a drink-drive limit of 20mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive of Brake, said: “As a charity that supports bereaved and injured road crash victims, we witness the suffering that drink-and-drug driving inflict, and appeal to everyone to help put a stop to it.

“Drink-and-drug driving deaths and injuries are cruel and needless, ending and ruining lives and leaving behind traumatised families to pick up the pieces.

“If you’re driving home from celebrations this festive season, especially if you’re a designated driver, it’s vital you take your responsibility for people’s safety seriously.”
