Be safe, don’t drive drunk. PLEASE

YES! Good work Brandhouse. As part of their corporate social investment, the company has come up with the Drive Dry campaign- and with the festive season getting into full swing now, a stern message like this is what is needed. You drive drunk; you must and will go to jail.

In my opinion there is no excuse for driving drunk or under the influence. You know the rules; two drinks and you’re done. Should you feel the need to get inebriated, be responsible enough to phone a cab service and ask them to fetch you. If you’re able to get off-your-face-drunk, that means you have the expendable income to get a cab. I have no sympathy for drunk drivers. Last week family friends of my aunt were involved in a head-on collision. The reason? Some stupid, irresponsible toss decided to get behind the wheel while she was intoxicated. Naturally she and her two friends were fine, but the family landed up in hospital with young Nicolas having to be put into an induced coma because the doctors were worried about the swelling on his brain. His mother was also badly injured in the accident- broke her leg in three places and the paramedics had to cut her out of the car with the jaws of life because the vehicle was so badly damaged. So to that toss, you’re lucky to be alive and fine and I’m very happy the family will be okay, but you’re still a wanker. I hope you realize that what you did was wrong!

So going into the festive season, I’d like to encourage you to go out and have a big fat jol. Be festive, make new friends, lovers, spend time with your loved ones and have a good old party. If you’re boozing, that’s cool we all do, but if you’re hammered, do yourself and others, utilize the cab services we have. Here are a few options:

There are many many more, so don’t be shy. All their contact details are on their sites. SA Cab works for me, but I’m investigating the Road Trip/ Good Fellas option. I can’t stress this enough, don’t drink and drive. Besides a criminal record, the losers you’ll feel for getting caught, you really don’t want to live with the guilt of someone’s death on your hands. That’s all. I thank you!
