The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has warned that the drink-drive message is failing to get through to young drivers who remain the most likely to be caught drink-driving and be involved in accidents involving death and serious injury.
Police Scotland tested 17,504 drivers for alcohol as part of their four week drink-drive campaign over the festive period and caught 351 drivers under the influence, compared to 434 drivers last year – a 19% reduction.
The IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) has published its road safety manifesto for the upcoming general election, calling for urgent support from all political parties to promote driver and rider improvement on UK roads.
Four out of five (84%) people think more drivers should be trained in the skills needed to deal with the aftermath of a road traffic collision, according to a new survey from the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) and Driver First Assist (DFA).
There should be greater use of intelligence-led policing to catch drink-drivers who repeatedly and excessively flout the law, according to road safety charity the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
