Cabbies Pick Up Festive Road Safety Campaign

An army of taxi drivers is set to join the campaign to make Glasgow’s roads safer by reporting suspected drunk drivers over the festive season.

Around 1,000 cabbies are backing Go Safe Glasgow – a partnership that aims to cut accidents and make our city’s roads safer for everyone that uses them.

One in nine deaths on Scottish roads involves drivers who are over the legal limit – and more than 650 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence during the festive season last year.

Astonishingly, one in four people does not know how much alcohol is likely to put them over the limit – and partners from Glasgow City Council to Strathclyde Police are urging revellers to avoid booze altogether if they need to drive.
