ALCOHOL

BY SARAH COLLINS-BRAY

DRINKING ISN'T THE PROBLEM. DRINK DRIVING IS THE PROBLEM.

Drink driving is a facto in about one in every five crashes in NSW where someone loses their life. You do not have to be drunk to be affected by alcohol. Between 2008 - 2012, 89% were men and 66% were under the age of 40.


Alcohol affects your driving, it does:


  • slow down your reaction time, can't respond to situations and make decisions.
  • makes you drowsy - falling asleep at the wheel is a high possibility.
  • harder to do more than one thing at a time - while steering you could miss traffic lights, cars entering from side streets or pedestrians.

PLAN B

What's your Plan B?

ROAD SAFETY

Have more police checking for drivers, by doing breathing tests on the side of the road, to prevent any accidents to happen in the next hour or so. Having more pedestrians taking to PLAN B. To make people understand, that not only them are in danger but the lives around them. Think before you do, and make a PLAN B.
