Gold Coast Driver Training: 5 Ways to Avoid Drunk Driving

Think about it three times: YOU Drink, YOU Drive, YOU Lose!

It’s not worth it. Believe us.

Despite the many campaigns about the dangerous effects of drink driving, some drivers continue to get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol. Drink driving can cause a significant damage not just to your vehicle but also to your surroundings.

A source from 9 News Gold Coast reported about a man allegedly drunk driving along Gold Coast, which caused massive damage in the street. Aside from fatal crashes, drunk driving can result in loss of licence or fines and potential job lost.

So, what are the ways that you can do to avoid drinking and driving?

Burleigh Driver Training School has compiled 5 handy tips on how to prevent drinking and driving: 

  1. Look for a designated driver:

    If you have plans to drink, our Gold Coast Driver Training School suggests looking for a designated driver that will do the driving for you. Make sure that this driver is not consuming any alcohol so you don’t have to worry about going home safe.

  2. Call someone to pick you up

    If you think that you are already drunk and you cannot handle the driving anymore, make sure that you call someone like your family member, friend, or colleague. Ask them to do the driving for you to avoid any accident.

  3. Make wise decisions- Be Responsible

    If you are matured enough to consume alcoholic beverages, it is very important to always drink responsibly. If you do not have strong alcohol tolerance, our Gold Coast Driver Training School suggests knowing your limit. This way, you can control yourself from drinking too much and you will not get drunk quickly.

  4. Call a taxi or uber

    Taxi is your best option in situations like this. Riding a taxi may seem to be expensive but causing an accident is a lot costly. If you do not have a designated driver, looking for a taxi would be your top choice.

  5. Self-Discipline

    Make a plan. If you plan to drink, make sure you don’t bring your vehicle with you so you won’t be tempted to use it. Know where you are going, whether it’s a bar or a party and if alcohol will be served. Decide earlier if you are going to drink. Safety starts with self-discipline. If you plan not to consume any alcohol, stick to it.
