  • About Us 

Visibility of the website is spread through Members of the Austrian Spirits Association who add the website address to POS (Point of Sale) and communication materials.  Co-operation with Ministry of Transport helped to increase awareness of drink-driving and led the start of the Austrian-wide media (billboard, TV, radio) campaign “Alkohol am Steuer: Könnten Sie damit leben?” (Drink-driving: could you live with it?) in October 2010.
