Drink OR Drive
Driving under the influence of drink or drugs is illegal - don't get in a vehicle with an impaired driver.
Plan your journey home.
Over the last five years alcohol related collisions in Sussex have cost society £197,770,000. Almost one fifth of fatal collisions in Sussex were alcohol related.
Anti drink/drug-drive operations happen throughout the year. Police can also breathalyse any drivers they have stopped if they suspect they have been drinking/using drugs and will do so with drivers involved in a collision.
To be absolutely sure the safe limit for driving is no alcohol or drugs whatsoever. Even amounts small can impair driving ability . It is now recognised that drug use can significantly affect your ability to drive safely - the risks and penalties are the same.

Getting home at night - from Plan B to Get Your Coat app
Driver or passenger - we want you to get home after a good night out - we distributed Plan B cards giving night travel info for the past 5 years.
We're now promoting a free app "Get Your Coat" which searches the area you are in for late night travel options. It's also got other useful features for a night out - alarm for last bus/train - arrived safe or unsafe location key. Timetables change regularly and this robust app works nationwide - even tested in Singapore successfully. It is available on Apple and Android platforms.
