Drink riding has now become largely socially unacceptable, and riding while under the influence of drugs (whether illegal or medicinal) is fast moving up the national agenda.
Unfortunately, there remains a hard core of persistent offenders who are still to be convinced of the dangers of riding while under the influence of alcohol. Many people still believe that it is only riders who are obviously drunk who are a danger and that social drinking is not really a problem. Everyone should realise that even a small amount of alcohol can affect riding ability.

The message we have been delivering across Sussex over the last few years has been Drink OR Drive.
