European Night Without Accident
Polski Przemysł Spirytusowy
2006 > Ongoing
To reduce the number of alcohol-related road accidents involving young drivers.
The Polish Spirits Industry supports the pan-European campaign which promotes the designated driver concept. The campaign revolves around:
- Young volunteers visiting nightclubs across the country on the third Saturday of October.
- Distribution of bracelets to registered designated drivers to prove their commitment to undergo a breathalyser test before leaving. If the test is negative, they are rewarded with gifts. If positive, volunteers encourage them not to drive or to entrust a sober friend to drive.
In 2010 and 2011 the campaign was held in conjunction with Don't Drink and Drive, an initiative run by ZP PPS.
