We have applied for a mobile breath testing facility which can be taken out to events in the community where alcohol is served. This will educate the public and their blood alcohol content will inform a patron of his fitness to drive after drinking.
There is a need to change certain attitudes and behaviors and to deliver improved road safety and active transport options. To help build this strong partnership between the community, road safety partners and Council we are applying for a mobile breathometer trailer. There will be a central booking office held by one of the Rotarians and delivered to the event. We are requesting support from TAC to fund the trailer for the instruments to be mounted on. We have got a verbal quote of approx $8,000.
