The government launched its Think! Drink Drive Christmas Campaign yesterday. It reveals the huge impact that a drink driving conviction can have on an individual’s current job and future employability.
According to the Department for Transport, 27% of people rely on their car to get to work, and would have to give up their job if they were caught drink driving and alternative jobs would require a criminal records check. A third of convicted drink drivers surveyed say they have been limited on the jobs they can do since their offence by not being able to drive.
