New program Los Noc-turnos
To raise awareness of the dangers of drink-driving among young drivers.
To implement the designated driver concept as normal behaviour.
To raise awareness of responsible alcohol consumption among young drivers.
Spain was one of the first countries to join the Pan-European designated driver campaign in 2001. The “El Lince, Programa un conductor cada noche” evolved over the years to become “Noc-turnos”.
In 2015, the programme was renewed and a new way of promoting the designated driver developed.
During on-site promotions, trained monitors accompany local police. The monitor waits for the police to carry out a breathalyser test with the driver. If the driver has an alcohol level of 0.0, the monitor rewards them (for example with a 20€ fuel voucher. All the awards must be claimed on the Spanish responsible drinking website, in order to interact with the target group in a more personalised way. Monitors also give the driver's friends, that go in the car, information about responsible drinking.
