Inspector Neil Craig, who heads up the Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit, stated: “This year we decided that our festive campaign would be specifically focused on encouraging members of the public to “make the right choice” by drawing their attention to the consequences of deciding to drive whilst impaired."
 
"In support of this we undertook a multi-agency approach, with support from key partner agencies and that of colleagues from within the Road Safety Team, and this year focused on a social media campaign aimed at both educating and preventing offences of this nature from being committed."
