The top five causes of fatal crashes in Queensland are the Fatal Five – Speeding, Driving while intoxicated or on drugs, Seat belts, Fatigue and Distraction.

Join a FREE scavenger hunt through Ipswich to help raise awareness for Road Safety Week and the Fatal Five.

Queensland Police Service Ipswich District Crime Prevention Unit, Department of Transport and Main Roads, Ipswich City Council, Motorcycle Queensland, Queensland Motorcycle Council and Ipswich, Fernvale and Boonah PCYC have come together to organize a road safety scavenger hunt rally.

Scavengers who sign up to take part will collect five clues highlighting the Fatal Five at various locations across Ipswich, with the finish line including a Drink Rite Standard Drinks display.

The first six drivers to correctly complete the challenge will receive a road safety kit and participate in the Drink Rite presentation at the final destination.

Senior Constable Kerrin Sheedy said Drink Rite is a valuable program.

“Drink Rite helps people know the alcohol content of different drinks and what constitutes a standard drink and what effect they have,” said Senior Constable Sheedy.

“People have wanted to know how many standard drinks they actually pour when making themselves a drink and are generally surprised at the difference in readings for drinkers who consume alcohol of different strengths.

“Many factors determine the effect alcohol will have on a person at any given time, but the Drink Rite program shows participants how quickly standard drinks can increase their alcohol concentration.

“At previous Drink Rite events, we’ve had a positive response from customers and found that most drinkers are keen to watch their alcohol intake.

“We are looking forward to a large turnout in the evening and hope that everyone will take the opportunity to discover, in a fun way, how to drink responsibly.”

The message is always, and always will be, if you are going to drink alcohol, plan your trip home and don’t drive.
