In addition, anyone going out socialising is reminded to consider the following safety advice.

•            If you are in the company of people you do not know very well, do not let your drink out of your sight.

•            While out socialising, do not accept drinks from unknown individuals.

•            Alcohol impairs your judgment. Always have a friend with you – use the buddy system.
