There’s no question that less alcohol consumption leads to safer experiences for everyone on our roads. That is why Yellow Cars is supporting Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council’s call for people in the community to pledge to give up drinking alcohol for the month of January 2016.
Darren Thorpe, Yellow Cars Managing Director said, “the ‘Dry January’ campaign from Alcohol Concern benefits passengers and drivers alike. To think that over 2 million people participated last year is fantastic. I hope they beat that figure this new year.”
Sandwell Council wrote that 66% of Dry January participants from last year were still drinking less last summer. That’s a phenomenal result, health benefit and road safety advantage.
Mr. Thorpe added that, “it’s nice to see the leader of the Council lead by example by giving up drink for the month of January. Our focus is on passenger road safety and this annual event has been a huge success so far.”
Finally, the Yellow Cars Managing Direction said, “seeing as 7 out of 10 participants reported shedding pounds after a month off of alcohol that’s 1.4 million people around the country reporting just one of many health benefits. I’m looking forward to hearing the various positive stories from Yellow Cars passengers informing our drivers as to how they’re getting along this month with Dry January.”
The award winning Yellow Cars is honoured to celebrate 21 years in business the West Midlands in 2016. The Mayor of Walsall awarded a Yellow Cars driver for saving the life of an elderly passenger. Here at Yellow Cars we believe in the promise of safety and constant innovation. Just like when we invested in the purchase of state-of-the-art breathalysers which we distributed free of charge to pubs in the community as part of our 2016 road safety drive to keep you and your family safer.
