Sergeant Atkinson reminded people of the need to arrange alternative transport if they are planning to drink.

“Although we want our communities to enjoy the good weather, we do want people to be safe and cannot stress enough the importance of not using a vehicle when you are intoxicated or planning your outings by using taxis if you want to drink.”
