New Brake Professional resource highlights risks of ‘morning after’ drink-driving
Brake Professional has released a new resource to help employers educate their drivers on the dangers of ‘morning after’ drink-driving.
The membership service for fleet operators and suppliers, run by road safety charity Brake, has launched the poster to debunk common misconceptions on sobering up after drinking, informing drivers that ‘coffee, showering, or sleeping can’t get alcohol out of your bloodstream. Only time can sober you up.’
The poster,sponsored by Dtec International, can be used alongside Brake Professional’s existing ‘lose your licence, lose your livelihood’ poster, which educates drivers on the consequences of drug-driving.
Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “Drink-driving remains one of the biggest killers on our roads, so it’s really important that employers put policies in place to deter their staff from drink-driving, and also work to educate their staff on the dangers of drink driving. This poster is a valuable tool for any employer looking to engage their staff with this important issue, and I would urge anyone with responsibility for managing at-work drivers to make use of this resource.”
These resources are available free of charge to all Brake Professional members through www.brakepro.org. Non-members can order the posters from the Brake shop, or join Brake Professional for £50 + VAT per year, to access these and other resources.
