This Might Just Take Your Breath Away

Drink/drug driving has caused over 2000 deaths and serious injuries since 2000. Impairment begins well below the current drink drive limit of 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. The skills most critical for driving – the brain’s ability to observe, interpret and process information from the eyes and other senses – are impaired by alcohol even at the lowest levels.

Share the Road to Zero is a huge community programme with one aim - zero road deaths in Northern Ireland.

Together, it’s our actions as road users that make a difference - by slowing down, paying attention, reading the road and anticipating the actions of other road users, never driving having consumed drink or drugs, ignoring the mobile phone and always wearing your seatbelt, no matter how short the journey.
