Drivers to be shown their alcohol limits

MOTORISTS will be able to find out how alcohol affects their driving and how to stay under the limit during a Drink Rite event at the Grand Old Crow Hotel at Crows Nest.

Crows Nest police officer-in-charge Sergeant Greg Dawes said the program helped people learn about the alcohol content of different drinks and what constituted a standard drink.

The event involves a standard drinks presentation and at least six participants who consume alcohol and have the opportunity to be breath tested by a police officer.

"Many factors determine the effect alcohol will have on a person at any given time, but the Drink Rite program shows participants how quickly standard drinks can increase their alcohol concentrations," Sgt Dawes said.

"During previous Drink Rite events there has been a positive response from the patrons.

"The message still is, and always will be, if you are going to drink alcohol - do not drive."

The presentation will be held from 6pm on November 2.

For more information call Sgt Greg Dawes on 4698 1420.
