A road safety group is looking for a ho-ho hero.
Road safety charity IAM RoadSmart launched its Christmas anti-drink drive campaign yesterday and said drivers should drink no alcohol at all if they are getting behind the wheel, and to make the designated driver of the group the ‘hero of the road.’
IAM RoadSmart maintains there is no true safe limit as to when a small amount of alcohol becomes risky. Alcohol affects different people in different ways depending on a variety of factors, not least age and build.
It also calls on groups of friends to reward the designated driver, who often feels excluded from a party of people when out on the town, with a free meal to make them feel a ‘hero of the road.’
And to give that hero designated driver and their guest a pat on the back, IAM RoadSmart is offering afternoon tea at The Savoy in London as a competition prize – all entrants have to do is tweet a picture to the IAM RoadSmart twitter page using the hashtag #herooftheroad, showing your designated driver being celebrated by his or her group of friends!
