Have a safe tournament
AND now for the serious bit . . .
The SaferPeterborough partnership is reminding motorists if they drink and drive during the World Cup they will be scoring an own goal in a play-off with a breathalyser.
Spokesman Pep Cipriano said: “The World Cup is an exciting time and with the many pubs and bars showing the games on large screens it will create an up-beat atmosphere.
“While we want everyone to enjoy this occasion, there are no excuses for drink and drug driving. Those caught will have to face the associated consequences.
“Fans should also plan how they will travel to work the next morning, remembering that alcohol consumed at night may still affect their driving the next day.
“They may feel OK, but could still be over the legal alcohol limit. Taking a shower, drinking coffee or taking other ‘sobering up’ antidotes will not help because it is impossible for the body to process alcohol any faster.”
