An event promoter is encouraging those who plan to drink alcohol, to do the responsible thing and get a designated driver during upcoming carnival events.
Craig Ryan, who is also a campaign Manager for the Designated Driver Campaign says the campaign aims to get drivers to understand there are consequences for driving while intoxicated.
Ryan says party goers should get a designated driver to protect themselves and other road users.
Meanwhile, head of the Substance Abuse Prevention Unit, Norma Jeffrey-Dorset says an alcohol control task force was launched some years ago and fell away by the wayside.
Jeffrey-Dorset added that the American University of Antigua had committed to donating breathalyzers, however, with the absence of supporting laws the donation never happened.
