It is better to be driven to drink than to be driven to jail. This is one of this year's anti-drink driving messages.
The annual campaign was kicked off today, with Singapore Press Holdings' ST Cars as title sponsor for the first time. The revamped portal, a buy-sell-rent platform for motorists and dealers, was launched today.
At the campaign launch at Pan Pacific Hotel this evening, Second Minister for Home Affairs S. Iswaran shared that 2,141 motorists were arrested this year for drink driving between January and September this year, an increase from 2,056 in the same period last year.
A Memorandum of Understanding was also signed between ST Cars and the Singapore Road Safety Council, for a five-year partnership.
