Local cafes and restaurants across Randwick City are providing free breathalysers to help patrons check their blood alcohol level after dinner before jumping in the car.
Under the joint initiative between the Eastern Beaches Liquor Accord and Randwick City Council, participating restaurants and cafes over the Easter and Anzac Day Long week end will receive more than 200 single-use breathalysers so patrons can check whether they are over the legal blood alcohol limit.
Participating restaurants and cafes will receive more than 200 single-use breathalysers so patrons can check whether they are over the legal blood alcohol limit.
Chairman of the Eastern Beaches Liquor Accord Peter Reid said he is pleased to be working with Randwick Council on this community safety program.
“Most ‘safe drinking’ campaigns focus on pubs and clubs but it’s important not to overlook licensed restaurants when educating the community.”
Randwick Mayor Murray Matson said drink driving is a factor in about one in five fatal crashes in NSW.
“You don’t have to be drunk to be affected by alcohol. You might feel sober, but no one drives well after drinking alcohol. Even at a low blood alcohol range, your ability to judge distances diminishes, while your tendency to take risks increases,” said the Mayor.
Participating restaurants include:
The Spot, Randwick
Teascapes Café at Pinocchio’s
The Spanish Fly
Even if you only sell pre-packaged snacks and confectionery you must notify Randwick City Council by completing “Registration of Food Premises” form.

Businesses have until 1 October 2011 to train and appoint a FSS and notify the local council of the details of the appointment.

One of the latest initiatives being used by the Coogee Bay Hotel to increase customer service and safety has been the introduction of Nightkey technology
Nightkey is a voluntary fingerprint identification system, which links a patron’s ID and photo, when patrons enter the hotel. The patron can refuse to use the fingerprinting system and just supply ID with a driver’s licence and have their photo taken. For more information on Nightkey click here.
