Who is he? More importantly, who is your Sober Bob? The Whos Your Sober Bob? campaign is run by the NT Government to encourage Territorians to ensure that, should they decide to drink, they have a sober driver getting them home. Your Sober Bob can be a friend, family member, taxi driver or bus driver, but the important thing is that they are sober. In the Territory, alcoholrelated crashes account for nearly 50 per cent of all road fatalities each year, so the NT Government is urging those planning on drinking alcohol to call on a Sober Bob to get them home. The Government is ensuring there are plenty of Sober Bobs around with the Christmas Express shuttle once again operating from 1am to 5am every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. Pick-up is from the Mitchell St bus stop, across from Kitty OSheas, and drop-off is to your door at a cost of $5 for the city, $10 for the northern suburbs and $15 for Palmerston. The Starlight Express also will provide New Years Eve revellers with free public bus transport from 7pm on New Years Eve until 7am the following day. The Government is determined to get the message to the public if you plan to drink, plan to get home safe. Mates do not let mates drink and drive so think ahead and ask, Whos your Sober Bob? One way not to let this guy spoil your festive season fun is to be responsible and dont drink and drive VISIT THEWEBSITE For more information about road safety this festive season, visit www.safeterritory.nt.gov.au
