Get home safely over the holidays

Anyone would agree that driving in Malta can be somewhat of a challenge at times. No matter what month, day or hour, drivers are faced with a series of obstacles. From roadworks and potholes to closed lanes, traffic jams, road rage and speeding, the list goes on and on.

While many occurrences on such a list are beyond anyone’s control, there is one worrying practice which continues to take place despite the risks involved, and that is drink-driving.

It is no secret that Malta has an endemic heavy-drinking culture, and there is a serious cause for concern as many drivers proceed to get behind the wheel after consuming heavy amounts of alcohol.

During the holiday season, drinkdriving becomes an intensified problem as office parties, family gatherings and reunions are all crammed into our festive schedules.

As a result, more cars are on the road, leading to increased opportunities to encounter driving obstacles.

Once alcohol is added to the mix, the risk of impaired judgement and inability to drive safely is amplified.

As an attempt to decrease the problem and potentially put an end to it, Maltese iGaming company Yobetit has teamed up with Taxify Malta to launch a road safety campaign urging drivers in Malta to either put down their drink or put down their car keys.

In order to avoid putting yourself and others at risk, Yobetit and Taxify are offering 300, €3 discount vouchers for everyone to help them get home safely. If you plan on drinking over the holidays, make sure you are prepared.

The holiday season is a time to come together, so don’t do anything to compromise that by drink-driving.

Claim one of Yobetit’s free €3 Taxify voucher codes from December 23 until December 26, 2018 and get home safely. All you need to do is download the Taxify App if you haven’t done so already, go to menu, choose card payment method, tap promotions and enter the code YOBETIT prior to requesting your cab, select apply – and enjoy your safe trip.

Head to Yobetit, or Taxify Malta on Facebook for more information on how you can get home safely this holiday season.
