Testing standard drink knowledge in Cranbrook

Posted on: Friday, 19 June 2015 at 12:00:00 AM

The Cranbrook RoadWise Committee ran a stall which included a standard drinks pouring station and alcohol quiz.

Many people were surprised to find out that the measures of alcohol they were pouring could put them over the legal driving limit of 0.05 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).

Local Senior Constable Jeff Osborne, who was working on the stall, said alcohol was a common contributing factor in crashes.

‘Preliminary statistics for the state from 2014 show that alcohol was a factor in 117 crashes where someone was killed or critically injured,’ Senior Constable Osborne said.

‘We want to send the message that if you’re planning to drink, plan not to drive. Nominate a skipper, stay over or get someone to pick you up.’

The RoadWise Committee would like to thank those who entered the alcohol quiz at the show. The winner was drawn at the last meeting. Congratulations to Andrea Cassin who answered all the questions correctly and won a $50 fuel voucher.
