This action is carried out with the support of the nationwide network of the Institute’s Volunteers, who participate with great enthusiasm in the actions of R.S.I. “Panos Mylonas” and help in the proper conduct of the event by their taking active action at 39 nightclubs this year.

The purpose of the event is to meet young people in their own environment and in direct contact with them to discuss alcohol consumption in relation to driving.

The volunteers, aged between 18 and 35 years old will be located outside the nightclubs of these cities to encourage the young to choose among their friends the “designated driver” who having accepted the title will be obliged not to consume alcohol all night in order to drive in safety his friends back from their night out.

To be recognized as the “designated driver” the volunteers ask him/her to wear a special wristband. When it's time for them to leave the bar he/she can take with his own free will a breathalyzer test to see if he/she kept his/her promise. If indeed he/she has retained control and did not drink, the “designated driver” will be rewarded while in other case, the volunteers will advise him/her to leave the vehicle and use a taxi.
The message of the event is:
 
"ALL have fun, ONE does not drink... the “DESIGNATED DRIVER!”

 

 
In the year 2012 that this action also took place, the number of people who participated in the events amounted to 3,401 people in 32 clubs in 18 cities.

 
Of these 1,205 (812 men and 393 women) took a breathalyzer test, with the results showing that 224 (179 men and 45 women) were above the permitted level by the Road Traffic Code.

This action is carried out by the Institute with the help of the Greek Traffic Police that is providing the breathalyzer tests to the Institute. This year's “European Night Without Accidents” is also supported by the Hellenic Association of Drinks Distributors(ENEAP) and the Greek Federation of Spirits Producers (S.E.A.O.P.), proving actively their common belief that through prevention and proper information tangible results are provided.

Moreover, the European Night Without Accidents would not take place all these years without the invaluable help of the volunteers of the Institute and the collaborating parties: Region of Western Greece, Scouts of Greece, Directorate of Primary Education of Serres, Directorate of Primary Education of Corfu Island, Drama’s Traffic Police Department, Aegean Motorway, AXA Insurance, Municipality of Maroussi, Municipality of Chalandri, Greek Consumer Organization of Florina (E.KAT.O.
