As the festive season kicks off and our social calendars begin to fill up, it’s timely to remind everyone to take extra care on the roads.
Many of us will travel long distances in the coming weeks for Christmas get-togethers and we know the roads become increasingly busy during this time of year.
It’s critical that everyone plans their journeys, makes good decisions and looks out for each other on the roads to ensure we’re all present for our loved ones this Christmas.
In the excitement of festivities it can be difficult to keep track of how many alcoholic drinks we have consumed and we know consuming as little as one drink impairs your judgement.
If you’re planning on drinking any alcohol our advice is to plan a way home that doesn’t involve driving.
Some of us will travel on unfamiliar roads this summer so it’s important we all slow down, take regular breaks and drive to the weather and road conditions.
Let’s all work together to keep each other safe so we can all enjoy Christmas with our families and friends.
