A-60-year-old man was arrested for alleged drink driving in Balvie Road, Milngavie at the weekend.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Our message is don’t risk it, don’t drink and drive.

“Far too many people die or are injured each year on Scotland’s roads as a result of drink driving and the irresponsible disregard shown by drink drivers for not only their own safety but that of other road users and pedestrians.

“Remember if you do drink and drive, it can have long term repercussions for you, your family and your community. It could cost you your job, your reputation or potentially your life not to mention the effect your actions have on innocent parties.

“There is no safe amount of alcohol in the body if you drive. Even at the new limit, you are three times more likely to die in a crash than if you had taken no alcohol. It is clear when it comes to drinking and driving, that the simple ‘the best advice is none’ message is the right one.

“If you are going out for a drink then leave the car at home.”
