It’s not long until Christmas!

School Holidays are coming up and our roads are expected to be busy. If you’re taking a road trip please ensure you’re well-rested, plan to allow for traffic and regular breaks, slow down and always wear a seatbelt.

It’s not long until Christmas! Never Ever Drink and Drive. The New Normal? Old Normal? With COVID-19 it can be hard to tell what’s what anymore. But remember, the driving limits for alcohol remain unchanged. We are constantly reminded not to drink and drive, but let’s not forget that tiredness and drowsiness have similar effects as consuming alcohol: they compromise driving ability, affect response times, and hinder important decision-making skills on the roads. This year we can celebrate with friends and family and the festive party season can get into full flow…But do you know the rules on drink-driving

“Do not drink and drive as it will seriously affect your judgement and abilities. You must not drive with a breath alcohol level higher than 35 microgrammes/100 millilitres of breath or a blood alcohol level of more than 80 milligrammes/100 millilitres of blood.

Alcohol will: give a false sense of confidence reduce co-ordination and slow down reactions affect the judgement of speed, distance and risk-reducing your driving ability, even if you’re below the legal limit take time to leave your body; you may be unfit to drive in the evening after drinking at lunchtime, or in the morning after drinking the previous evening The best solution is not to drink at all when driving, because any amount of alcohol can impair driving ability. If you are going to drink, arrange other means of transport

Remember that it isn’t just about driving on the same day/night, but also the dangers of driving the next day. Avoid devastating consequences for you, your family and others!
