A 43 year old woman from Bridgewater was involved in a single vehicle roll over at Claremont yesterday. She will face court for Dangerous Driving, Driving Under the Influence (DUI), and Resist Police.
The previously reported abhorrent driving behaviour of a 20 year old man at Lindisfarne and Geilston Bay yesterday only proves to highlight that it is a small percentage of motorists choosing to ignore our pleas for common sense on the roads.
As we approach New Year’s Eve celebrations please remember the five key contributing factors to serious and fatal motor vehicle crashes:
Alcohol and Drugs
So, if you plan to go out and celebrate this New Year’s make your plans now as to how you intend to get there and return. And remember, if you do end up drinking, you may be still over the limit the next morning so don’t take the risk.
