Raising a glass this ANZAC day? Please plan your ride home
As Western Australians acknowledge the sacrifice made by Australia’s service men and women, drivers are reminded to be safe and responsible on the roads this ANZAC Day.
If you’re planning to share a drink with mates during ANZAC Day commemorations, plan not to drive.
Instead, the community is encouraged to use public or on-demand transport services, nominate a designated driver or arrange to stay the night.
“While double demerit points don’t apply in Western Australia on ANZAC Day this year, there’s no cause for any of us to relax about the road rules,” said Road Safety Council Chairman Iain Cameron.
“Anyone thinking about having a few drinks during commemorations and then driving, please be aware that police will be out there.” Transperth
will provide any serving and returned service personnel wearing their uniforms, campaign ribbons or medals with free travel on trains, buses and ferries across the day. Main Roads WA
has advised there will be road closures around the CBD and Kings Park from 3am to accommodate the crowd attending the Dawn Service at the State War Memorial.
