News Release: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 – Bermuda Road Safety Council (BRSC) Chairman, Dennis Lister III JP MP, will host a second pop-up event on Friday, 14 December at 1:30 pm outside of City Hall to distribute Designated Driver (D/D) buttons.
Chairman Lister hosted the first of two D/D pop-ups last Friday, 7 December following a press conference on Wednesday, 5 December where he urged members of the public to consider participating in a new BRSC campaign to combat drink driving this holiday season.
Chairman Lister said, “The Bermuda Road Safety Council is endorsing the Designated Driver campaign by partnering with restaurants, bars and other venues to welcome any recognized D/D when they enter the premises. The Designated Driver will be guaranteed at least one free non-alcoholic beverage at that venue. How will they know who the D/D is? They will be wearing a button on their chest to let people know.”
Chairman Lister also encouraged Designated Drivers to keep a log of how many times they act as the D/D to be eligible for a special prize, provided by the BRSC, at the end of the year.
