A Man Walks Into a Bar....

We've all done it....we've all had a drink or five and when its time to go home, our pals say to us "Are you okay to drive?" and the answer when we've had too many bevvies is :  "I'm fiiiiiine!!".

We become invincible, we become arrogant, we loose our inhibitions and think we are Superman.

Firstly this is NOT a sponsored post.  

Did  you know?  Research indicates that 50% of people who die on South African roads, are over the legal blood alcohol level?  That's HALF!  That's a frikken scary stats, Plonkers!

The legal limit for alcohol in the blood is 0.05gms per 100mls and the breath alcohol content limit is 0.24mls per 1000mls.  And did you know, it is illegal to refuse a blood test or breathalyser in South Africa?
If a driver is prosecuted and it is not proven that the alcohol content is less than 0.05 grams per 100 milliliters, it is assumed that the blood-alcohol level is over this limit. If convicted of a drink driving offence, the driver loses their licence for a minimum period and a hefty fine can also be issued.

So, wouldn't you rather have Scooter Angels on speed dial?

Two “Angels” are dispatched to your location within an hour of calling. One of them will drive you home safely in the comfort of your own vehicle, while the other follows to collect the designated driver afterwards. 

Could it be more simple? and safe!

Scooter Angels are in Joburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. 

Give them a ring when you need a sober driver!

That's a great idea.
I've never even driven after one beer.
