STEP Campaign

Institute of Alcohol Studies Drink Driving Campaign 

A wide coalition of road safety groups, health bodies, and representative from the emergency services, are putting pressure on the government to reduce the drink driving limit in England and Wales. 

As part of this we are encouraging emergency services personnel with knowledge of drink driving to contact their MP with their personal experiences. 

Please take 5 minutes to email your MP and support this campaign. You can use the suggested text below as a template if you’d like, or use your own words entirely. 

You can find out who your MP is using your postcode here.
