European Night Without Accident
To reduce the number of alcohol-related road accidents involving young drivers.
The Polish Spirits Industry supported the pan-European campaign which promotes the designated driver concept until 2018. In 2010 and 2011 it was held in conjunction with Don't Drink and Drive, an initiative run by ZP PPS. The campaign revolved around:
- Young volunteers visited nightclubs across the country on the third Saturday of October.
- Bracelets were distributed to registered designated drivers to prove their commitment to undergo a breathalyser test before leaving. If the test was negative, they were rewarded a gift. If positive, volunteers encouraged them not to drive or to entrust a sober friend to drive.
