Don’t drink and drive, arrive alive – Road Safety Council

The Bermuda Road Safety Council has called on motorists to not drink and drive so they can “arrive alive”.

A BRSC spokesman said: “The summer months always bring about a festive mood. Often linked to that is an increase in the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

“As always, we encourage everyone to be responsible and plan how you are getting home safely.”

The spokesman said that anyone who decides to drink should hire a taxi, have a designated driver, call friends and family to collect them or use services like Home Safe.

“We also recommend that all event planners and organisers implement the BRSC’s Transportation Plan, to ensure that your guests get home safely,” the spokesman added.

“If you would like to work with the BRSC on creating a Transportation Plan for your event, please send an e-mail to bdarsc@gmail.com.”

The spokesman added that between January and June this year, the Bermuda Police Service reported 31 collisions in which a motorist decided to drive after drinking, calling the figure “alarming”.
