Shop the drink drivers

CRIMESTOPPERS Scotland is urging people in Moray to speak up anonymously to keep drink drivers off the road.


With the festive season under way, the temptation to drive while over the limit can increase with office parties and get-togethers.

The charity is therefore encouraging the public to do their duty.

Last year Crimestoppers Scotland received 1095 anonymous calls.

These included reports about:

  • A mum drunk on the school run
  • A work colleague regularly driving home drunk from the train station
  • A man taking the back roads home from the village pub

Angela Parker, national manager for Scotland Crimestoppers, said: "No-one wants to meet a drunk driver on the roads, so your information could help prevent an accident from happening and could

even help save lives.

"We appreciate that if you’re close to someone who gets behind the wheel regularly while over the limit, it can be difficult to come forward. It could be a work colleague, a neighbour, or even a family member or a friend.

"This can explain why some people are reluctant to go to the police because of the fear of being identified.

"By trusting us with your information you’ll remain 100% anonymous. Always.

"Calls to our contact centre on 0800 555 111 and information passed through www.crimestoppers-uk.org cannot be traced.

"Together we can help protect those you care about."
