The local Liquor Accord and Council have
funded FREE Nightrider bus services on New Year’s Eve. These services will run
between midnight and 3.15am. The northern service will take revellers home to
the Northern Beaches and Woolgoolga. The Southern service will drop off to
Boambee East, Toormina and Sawtell.
“We’re urging everyone to make sure
they have a Plan B to get home. People can take a Nightrider bus, a taxi, get a
lift with a friend who hasn’t been drinking or taking drugs, arrange to stay
overnight with a friend or relative, or take a courtesy bus from a venue,”
says Anne Shearer, Council’s Road
Safety and Transport Officer.
“You may think driving home is the
cheapest option – but the consequences of a drink drive offence can be very
costly. You could lose your licence, cop a fine, lose your job, lose the
respect of your family, friends and colleagues, end up in jail or even lose
your life,” she said.
