Groups organising holiday events are urged to consider how attendees will get home .

The Bermuda Road Safety Council said in a statement: “As we enter into the Christmas holiday period, there will be an increase of events and parties where people will be consuming alcohol.

“The consuming of alcohol and then consequently operating a vehicle is illegal, and to avoid having intoxicated persons driving on our roads, we call for transportation plans.

“A transportation plan is incorporating into your event how your event-goers will get to and from the event if they are planning to consume alcohol.

“An example of a transportation plan is asking for event-goers to meet at arranged locations to be picked up, by minibus or taxi and then taken to the event and then for those persons to then be driven back to the arranged drop-off location. This is not only limited to land travel, but also water transportation can be arranged.”

The statement said that transportation plans have been successful in the past and encouraged event organisers to incorporate a plan to help make the roads safer.
