Blowing Zero Gives Drivers the Chance to Win Free Fuel

The City of Melville TravelSmart/Road Safety working group attended a Random Breath Test stop with WA Police on Tuesday, 20 September with an aim to reward drivers that blew a zero alcohol reading.

All drivers that returned a zero drug and alcohol reading were given a competition entry form to go in the running to win a $100 fuel voucher.

City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the competition was a great way to reward those who did the right thing on our roads, making it safer for all road users.

“Murdoch Drive is a busy road and we know the area also attracts cyclists and pedestrians, making it even more critical for all drivers to be in an adequate state to drive,” he said.

“Our working group members commended all of the drivers who returned breath samples with a zero alcohol reading and provided warning packs that outline and emphasise the risks of drink and drug driving to warn drivers who blew alcohol readings up to 0.05.

“The TravelSmart and Road Safety working group are doing fantastic work in our community to draw attention to road risks such as distractions and encouraging courtesy on our roads, and this competition is just another one of their initiatives.”

All drivers who received competition slips must have their entries in by Tuesday, 27 September 2016, with the winner of the $100 fuel voucher to be announced on Monday, 10 October 2016.
