Designated driver badges will be handed out at City Hall today.

The badges will guarantee drivers who opt not to drink in order to get their friends home safe receive free soft drinks over the weekend.

The Bermuda Road Safety Council has teamed up with restaurants and bars for the scheme as part of a crackdown on drink-driving.

Dennis Lister III, chairman of the Bermuda Road Safety Council, will help hand out the badges. Mr Lister said: “The Bermuda Road Safety Council is endorsing the designated driver campaign by partnering with restaurants, bars and other venues to welcome any recognised designated driver when they enter the premises.

“The designated driver will be guaranteed at least one free non-alcoholic beverage at that venue.

“How will they know who the designated driver is? They will be wearing a button on their chest to let people know.”

The badges will be distributed at 1.30pm.
