Tough legal and personal consequences face motorists who are caught drinking and driving this festive season.

If you are caught drink driving, the criminal record will stay with you for a minimum of 20 years.

This year’s drink drive campaign tells motorists – no matter how little you are over the limit, you are still a criminal in the eyes of the law.

The message is not to drink anything at all before driving.

Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said: “Our message has always been clear – don’t ever drink and drive.

“You could face an automatic ban of 12 months, a fine of up to £5,000, a lengthy criminal record, the possibility of a prison sentence, and an increased risk of losing your vehicle for good.”
