In NSW, drink driving plays a part in about one of every seven crashes where someone dies.
Eurobodalla Council’s road safety officer Kate McDougall said the rules around drink driving were clear but with pandemic restrictions easing and favourite watering holes opening up, now was the perfect time for motorists to brush up.
“For example, NSW has three blood alcohol concentration limits – zero, under 0.02 and under 0.05,” Ms McDougall said.
“Since May 2019 drink driving can result in the immediate suspension of your licence – even if it’s a first-time or low-range offence. Do you know which limit applies to you?”
Ms McDougall said Eurobodallans had until 21 June to test their knowledge of NSW’s road rules regarding alcohol.
“Transport for NSW are running their Plan B road safety quiz,” she said.
“It’s not only a fun way to test your understanding of the rules around alcohol and driving, but there are $50 supermarket gift cards to be won.”
