A campaign to remind drivers to have a Plan B when heading out this festive season has launched in Hunters Hill.

Bar runners with the message ‘What’s your Plan B? If you’re drinking, don’t drive’ are being made available to pubs and clubs in the local government area.

Hunter’s Hill Council, working with Transport for NSW, received funding from the Local Government Road Safety Program to purchase and distribute the bar runners.

Hunters Hill Club has put them in place as a friendly reminder to patrons.

Club General Manager Jim Granger said it was an important message to give to everybody.

It was timely with the festive season approaching and in response to COVID-19.

“People are just getting back out,” he said.

“A lot of people, their habits have changed.

“You want to remind them of these things.”

Mr Granger said the club was happy to support the Council and Government in getting the road safety message out.

Patrons were receptive and, for the most part, responsible about their behaviour, he said.

The club also offers a courtesy bus service, with bookings taken 24 hours in advance.

Hunters Hill Mayor Ross Williams said it was important that everybody got home safely.

“Not only drivers but other road users and other members of the community – that they are able to safely get around the local area,” he said.

“It’s vital if people are enjoying the Christmas festive season that they have a Plan B to ensure they get home safely.”
