We operate a zero tolerance policy on carrying and consumption of alcohol. This is under Section 1 (Control of Alcohol) of the Bus and Coach of Driver and Passengers Act 1985.
The driver will not allow any alcohol to be carried onto the coach. Police have the powers to stop and search a PSV if they think the law is being infringed. Heavy penalties with maximum fines of up to £1000 and possible jail sentences can be imposed.
