Petition Action

Free soft drinks for designated driver campaign

Additional Information

Government to introduce a policy granting free soft drinks to the designated driver on a night out. This person, in return for not drinking alcohol and driving their group, would receive a number of free drinks from pubs & bars.

This would promote greater road safety and potentially reduce the number of drink related motoring accidents. It would also be a relatively low cost contribution to road safety.

A similar policy is used in parts of Canada as shown here: http://www.mlcc.mb.ca/e/mlcc-designated-driver-en
