BE SMART! BE SAFE!

With the Christmas and New Year celebrations fast approaching, remember to be smart and stay safe!

Remember if you are planning to go out over the Christmas period for a night out Ė charge your mobile phone and remember to take it with you. If you plan to use it to arrange transport, make sure that you have enough power left at the end of the night.

Plan in advance how youíll get home; ensure you have money to get home if you need to get a taxi, bus or train. Always book taxis from a reputable company or arrange for a family member or friend to pick you up.

Stay safe on your journey home - never take isolated short cuts. Keep to busy areas and on public transport, sit where there are lots of other people.

If drinking alcohol, be sensible about how much you consume and don't accept drinks from strangers or people you have just met. Donít leave drinks unattended; be sensible and pace yourself. A drunk person can be vulnerable and is a far easier target for a criminal.

Stick with friends Ė donít leave nights out on your own or with strangers. Take care of each other and make sure you all get home safely.

Remember, for your own safety do not travel with a driver who has drunk alcohol or who may be under the influence of drugs. If you are planning on going out with a group of friends, agree on a designated driver. Make sure somebody knows where you are going and what time you will be home.

Please consider carefully whether or not to leave a pub, club or party with somebody you have just met. If you see a friend or colleague who may be at risk due to alcohol or some other vulnerability, ensure you look after them and keep them safe.

If someone offers to buy you a drink only accept it if know you can trust them. Pint size glasses and shared communal drinks such as punch bowls can easily be spiked. It is not always possible to know what has been mixed into these drinks - stick to drinks that are not shared and make sure your drink is not left unattended.

Remember! If you or your friend begin to feel drunk after fewer drinks than normal, seek kelp from a trusted friend or speak to a member of management staff at venue.

And the morning after...
Don't rush to get behind the wheel the morning after you've been out drinking. You may feel fine but you could still be over the legal alcohol limit or unfit to drive. You may think you're in control but any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive safely. A cold shower, a cup of coffee or any of the other myths about 'sobering up' will not make you fit to drive any quicker... It just takes time to get the alcohol out of your system.
