Transport roadshow will tackle drink/drug driving
A UK-wide transport 'road show' will educate thousands of the country's professional drivers about drink driving over a 10-month period.
The UK Traffic Commissioners' have called in the TTC Group - the UK's leading alcohol training organisation - to educate 4,000 LGV and Public Service Vehicle operators in a series of nationwide training sessions being held from Scotland to the Isle of Wight.
TTC will deliver training to freight owners and managers of coach, bus and lorry operations at 25 UK venues. The first session was held in Wakefield last month, with the final session scheduled for in London in March 2007.
The agenda covers the strength and units of alcohol, company drug and alcohol policies, and the problems of prescribed medications and recreational drugs.
TTC group director Graham Wynn (pictured above) said: "A consistent message on alcohol, and especially the problems of the morning after, will go out to transport professionals so that they are aware of the pitfalls and dangers caused by drinking and driving.
