News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Bermuda Road Safety Council (BRSC) takes this opportunity to re-introduce its Transportation Plan. The idea of a transportation plan is to have pre-arranged transportation such as minibuses, taxis or ferries for your guests to get safely to and from your event after consuming alcohol.
In December 2018 the BRSC introduced the Transportation Plan, which proved to be a success, at events such as:
· New Year’s Eve 2019
· 2019 Cup Match
· BPSU’s 2019 Christmas Party
· Butterfield Bank’s 2019 Christmas Party
As we are now entering the summer months, there will be an increase of events and parties where alcohol will be consumed. As we are all aware, operating a motor vehicle whilst impaired is not only illegal and dangerous, it can also result in a collision. To these points, the Council encourages all event planners, organizers and hosts of large events, to incorporate a Transportation Plan.
Please email the Council atif you are planning an event and would like to liaise and work with the BRSC on implementing your Transportation Plan.
The BRSC reminds all delivery riders on motorcycles to please ride carefully, with consideration of other road users and obey all rules of the road. We also ask that you ride at a safe speed and refrain from using electronic devices while you are riding. We understand that food deliveries must be made in a timely manner. However, your safety and the safety of others must always be a priority.
In closing, the BRSC again reminds the motoring public to always drive with care, caution and courtesy, reduce your speed and Don’t Drink and Drive.
Cautious Drivers = Safer Roads = Safer Bermuda
