According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development – OECD, Bermuda has one of the highest rates of road fatalities – 20 per 100,000. The OECD average is 9.6 per 100,000. From the year 2000 to 2012 135 people died on Bermuda's roads. It is CADA's view that Sobriety Checkpoints are needed in Bermuda to reduce the high number of alcohol related road fatalities and road collisions, when Non-Selective Sobriety Checkpoints have been introduced in other jurisdictions, such as Ireland and Australia to name only a few, there has been a marked reduction in the number of deaths and road collisions. CADA will continue to lobby for legislation to give the police the power to carry out Non-Selective Sobriety Checkpoints
If you plan to consume alcohol, put a plan in place to get home safely. Put this plan in place before you leave home. Put the phone numbers of cab drivers you know into your cell phone and when you are ready to go home call them. Or, before you go out arrange for a cab driver to collect you from an agreed place at an agreed time.
Or, take the bus.
Or, arrange for someone in your party who is not drinking to be your designated driver.
Remember ABCD – Always use Bus, Cab or Designated Driver.
