star this property answer text <p>Sources of funding for campaign spend are kept under review but we currently have no plans to introduce a levy on the drinks industry to fund the drink drive campaign.</p><br /><p>Instead our aim is to develop partnerships with brands who can provide incentives to help drivers avoid alcohol if they are driving, or to help those people who are drinking get home safely without driving. To date we have secured the following partnerships so far for our 2015 campaign:</p><br /><p>- Coca Cola, who will be running their designated driver campaign, rewarding designated drivers with a buy-one-get-one-free offer on coke drinks in thousands of venues during the festive season.</p><p>- Budweiser who also promote and celebrate the important role of designated driver.</p><p>- Johnnie Walker, who ask drivers to take a pledge to never drink and drive, in return for discounted safe journeys home.</p><br /><p>These initiatives are all completely funded by the partner and add significant value to the campaign.</p><br /><p>We will continue to seek further partnerships with commercial brands who can extend the reach and impact of our campaigns.</p><p><strong></strong></p><p><strong></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport publishes estimates of the average cost to society of road traffic accidents as part of the Transport Analysis Guidance (called WebTAG). The cost is broken down into six elements. Three of these elements are casualty-related:</p><ul><li>lost output/cost to the economy</li><li>medical and ambulance costs</li><li>human costs</li></ul><p> </p><p>The remaining three are accident-related:</p><ul><li>police costs</li><li>insurance and administration costs</li><li>damage to property</li></ul><p> </p><p>The human cost element is estimated using evidence of individuals’ willingness to pay for a marginal reduction in their risk of suffering a road traffic accident. The other components are estimated using official data sources.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has not made any estimate of the costs of road traffic accidents to the justice system or the benefits system. However, it is likely that these will be small in comparison with human and lost output costs.</p><p> </p><p>The table below gives an estimate of the costs for each of the six WebTAG elements for all reported personal-injury accidents in Great Britain where at least one driver was over the alcohol limit. The figures are based on accidents that occurred in 2014 as this is the most recent year for which final drink drive accident statistics are available.
