Drink Driving – Stay safe this Christmas!
Our message is Stay Safe and Legal this Christmas, think about the consequences and don’t take the risk of driving under the influence or traveling in a vehicle with a driver who has consumed alcohol.
Beware the morning after – You could be over the legal limit many hours after you last drink, even if it’s the ‘morning after’. Sleep, coffee and cold showers don’t help to sober up – time is the only way to get alcohol out of your system.
If your planning to drink alcohol, plan to get home without driving – Options include agreeing on a designated driver, saving a taxi number to your phone, or finding out about public transport routes and times before you go out.
Don’t offer an alcoholic drink to someone you know is planning to drive – Even if you’re not driving, you can help reduce the number of people who are killed and injured every year by drink driving.
Don’t accept a lift from a driver you know has drunk alcohol.
