New Arrangements for the Drink Drive Rehabilitation Scheme (DDRS) in Wales
In 2010 89 people were killed on the roads in Wales. Of those one in four were linked to drink-driving. It is clear that, whilst the number of drink-drive offences has fallen in recent years, there is more all road safety partners can do to achieve further improvements.
The Welsh Government wants to ensure that the DDRS is a positive educational tool to help ensure that people who commit drink-drive offences do not reoffend. We believe that to achieve this course referral must be easy for Courts to understand, providers should be the best available, and course content should be high-quality, consistent and tailored to meet the specific needs of Wales. The proposed changes in legislation enable us to make these adjustments to the Scheme.
All partners involved in the successful delivery of the DDRS – which includes the Welsh Government, the Courts and providers – have a responsibility to try and reduce instances of drink-driving. Research clearly shows that attendance on the course significantly reduces the likelihood of reoffending, so it is vital that the Scheme remains fit for purpose and we work to encourage more offenders to attend.
