Komm gut heim / Travel safe
After a great night at the German Club Cairns, we want you to get home safely.
Traveling safely after drinking
If you are going to drink, plan to not drive. Where possible, separate drinking and driving. Organise a designated driver, a lift, or a cab/ride-share, or public transport to safely get where you are going safely. Or simply stay where you are for the night at a friend’s place (Mates’ Motel).
Be aware. Alcohol affects your safety when walking on or near the road. The key danger periods are walking between venues, home, to cab ranks or for food.
Easy ways to help keep you and your mates safe are:
- pre-plan your way home with a designated driver, lift, or enough cash for a taxi/Uber.
- cross at traffic lights at the appropriate signals rather than attempting to J-walk or trying to race the traffic.
- walk on footpaths, not roadsides.
- don’t walk while looking at your phone. Keep your attention on the road.
help mates get home safely—walk them to their lift, cab, and/or food.
Getting home safely is all that matters.
