Christmas drivers offered free soft drink

Designated drivers will be offered “free” soft drinks as part of the government’s Christmas anti-drink-drive campaign.

Some 8,000 pubs are taking part in the scheme which offers a buy one, get one free deal on soft drinks. The scheme follows a partnership between the government’s road safety campaign THINK! and Coca-Cola.

The campaign will feature radio adverts, posters in pubs, and online search activity until 2 January.
