Have you ever had a couple of drinks and then considered driving?

The Drink Rite event involves a standard drinks presentation and at least six participants who consume alcohol and have the opportunity to be breath tested by a police officer.

Senior Constable Kelly O'Brien said the Drink Rite event helps people learn about the alcohol content of different drinks and what constitutes a standard drink and the effect these have on different people.

"People have been keen to find out how many standard drinks they are actually pouring when they make themselves a drink and are generally surprised at the difference in readings for drinkers who are consuming alcohol of varying strengths," Senior Constable Kelly O'Brien said.

“Many factors determine the effect alcohol will have on a person at any given time, but the Drink Rite program shows participants how quickly standard drinks can increase their alcohol concentrations,"

“During previous Drink Rite events we have had a positive response from the patrons and have found that most drinkers are keen to monitor their alcohol consumption,” Senior Constable Kelly O'Brien said.

“We look forward to a big turn-out on the night and hope that everyone will take the opportunity to find out, in a fun way, how much they can responsibly drink,”

“The message still is, and always will be, if you are going to drink alcohol – do not drive."
