AsiaOne Anti-Drink Drive Campaign 2015
The Traffic Police (TP) conducted an island-wide enforcement operation during the early hours of Thursday, 3 December 2015. The operation was targeted at errant motorists who were found to be drink driving.
80 drivers were stopped and tested for alcohol consumption at various road blocks set up across Singapore. 15 men and 1 woman aged between 22 and 47, failed the test and were arrested for drink driving. The highest Breath Evidential Analyser (BEA) test result was 79 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, which is more than double the prescribed legal limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
During the road block, drivers who were found to have exercised responsibility on the roads, for example by engaging valet services after drinking, were commended. This commendation initiative is part of AsiaOne’s Anti Drink-Drive Campaign, jointly organised by Traffic Police, Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) and AsiaOne. This year, the message for AsiaOne’s Anti Drink-Drive campaign aims to remind motorists to stay clear of drink drinking and hold onto the trust given to them by their loved ones to reach home safely.
