Have a plan to get people home safely, Road Safety Council urges
The Bermuda Road Safety Council has called on event organisers have a plan to ensure guests can return safely as the summer season ramps up.
A spokesman for the body said transportation plans that include pre-arranged minibuses, taxis or ferried have proven to be successful
The spokesman said: “As we are now entering the summer months, there will be an increase of events and parties where alcohol will be consumed.
“As we are all aware, operating a motor vehicle whilst impaired is not only illegal and dangerous, it can also result in a collision.
“To these points, the council encourages all event planners, organisers and hosts of large events, to incorporate a transportation plan.”
The BRSC said that organisers can contact the council at firstname.lastname@example.org to help develop a transportation plan.
The spokesman also urged delivery riders on motorcycles to take care when travelling on Bermuda’s roads.
He said: “We also ask that you ride at a safe speed and refrain from using electronic devices while you are riding.
“We understand that food deliveries must be made in a timely manner, however your safety and the safety of others must always be a priority.”
