Credits (Prestige Valet)
Are you still driving after a few drinks with your friends? Hiring a valet after drinking will allow you to get home safely. Here are a few reasons why you should hire a valet after drinking!
You might get into an accident and get hurt
Driving right after you drink can cause your senses to deteriorate and you might not be able to make the correct judgments while on the road. While at this state, an accident can occur causing injury or even death. Thousands of Singaporeans have lost their lives every year to drink driving. Stay out of the drunk driving accident statistics!
You might get into an accident and hurt someone
Besides hurting yourself in that accident, you can also hurt someone else! Pedestrians who suffered from drink driving accidents in Singapore are extremely high. Therefore, to prevent accidents from happening, do get a valet to drive you home.
Drink driving is a very serious offence
According to section 67 of the Road Traffic Act, anyone who drives or attempts to drive a vehicle on the road with alcohol in his breath or blood that exceeds the legal limit is considered guilty of an offence.
The penalty for driving while under the influence of alcohol is a fine of up to S$10,000 or imprisonment of up to 12 months or both. Subsequent offences will result in a fine of up to S$20,000 and imprisonment of up to two years.
Drunk driving will raise the cost of your car insurance
The insurance company will usually check a driver’s history before insuring him/her. If you have a history of driving under the influence, you’ll be charged either more or they might even refuse to cover you.
Your driving license can get revoked
Imagine not being able to drive just because of a mistake made in a day! You might get banned from getting behind the wheels for months and even years if you get caught driving under the influence of alcohol. You’ll be greatly disadvantaged if you’re highly dependent on your car.
