What's Your Plan B?

What's Your Plan B if you are going out for a few drinks? Council, in partnership with Transport NSW, invites you to participate in the 'What's Your Plan B - Win a Swag' competition.

The What's Your Plan B, if you are drinking, don't drive campaign, is part of the Local Government Road Safety program and runs for two weeks in the lead up to, and after the Queen's birthday long weekend in June.

People often underestimate the effects 'a few drinks' can have on their driving skills

and overestimate their ability as a driver. When faced with the potential minor inconvenience of finding an alternative way home, some simply choose to drink and drive putting themselves and others in danger.

The physical and psychological effects of driving with alcohol in your system, even only small amounts, include:

  • slowed brain function
  • reduced ability to make decisions or react quickly
  • elevated confidence, leading to greater risk taking
  • reduced balance and coordination
  • increased drowsiness, making it easier to fall asleep at the wheel.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Amanda Findley said, "it's essential that we all make a sensible choice about how to get home safely after having a few drinks. Driving is not an option. Having a Plan B is a simple positive approach to making alternative arrangements to get home."

"The 'Plan B' campaign encourages NSW drivers to make positive choices to get home safely after drinking. Making a sensible choice might save your life and reduce the significant danger to others on our roads," Mayor Findley added.

There are two single swags valued at almost $300 each to be won. To enter the competition, write your PLAN B for getting home on an entry ticket available from the participating venues, and place it in the entry box.
