WELCOME TO CADD

Our aim is to educate and raise awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drink or drugs and avoid death or serious injury.

IF YOU DRINK DON'T DRIVE. IT'S SIMPLE

Any alcohol, even a small drink will impair driving ability. The only safe course is not to drink and drive!

To reinforce the dangerous and often fatal consequences of combining drink or drugs with driving, we have compiled many statistics about drink driving to illustrate how lethal it can be - just take a look at the figures on this page.
