Give your car the night off
Christmas parties and end of year celebrations make it the most high-risk times on our roads.
1 in 5 deaths caused by alcohol
In NSW drink driving is a factor in around one in every five fatal crashes. The message is plain and simple, having any amount of alcohol when driving increases the risk of being involved in a crash. You don’t have to be drunk to have been affected by alcohol, which is why if you are planning on driving, the best advice is to not drink at all.
Leave the car at home
Consider other ways to get to a party:
- carpool with Co-Hop
- take the bus or train
- use Uber or GoCatch
- or walk in a group if it's close by.
