29 July 2015 Nightrider a safe bet

Coffs Harbour is gearing up for one of the key events of the year - the Carlton Mid 2015 Coffs Harbour Gold Cup Carnival.

Thousands will turn out to enjoy a day at the track next Thursday August 6 and the Coffs Harbour Liquor Accord is working, with the support of Council, to ensure that everyone gets home safe and sound.

Nightrider, the free late night bus service funded by the Liquor Accord, will be operating a number of late night services after the event from a variety of venues to take patrons to the Northern Beaches and Southern suburbs.

Many local venues are also stepping in and providing free shuttle buses to and from the Coffs Harbour Racing Club and their venues.

“We are encouraging everyone to have a Plan B and leave the car at home,” said Council’s Road Safety and Transport Officer Anne Shearer

“If you can’t catch a bus, catch a taxi, get a lift with someone who hasn’t been drinking or walk. Police will be conducting random breath testing at a number of locations throughout the day and night. The consequences of drink driving can be severe, including loss of licence, a large fine, loss of job, injury and even death.”

Further information about the Nightrider service is available on the Coffs-NightRider Facebook Page and Council’s website at  www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/nightrider
