World Cup 2018 – Don’t drink and drive, Vias urgesWednesday, 16 May 2018 15:32
About 87% of survey respondents said they would not drink alcohol or would limit themselves to a maximum of three glasses during the national team’s matches. On the other hand, 13% plan to drink at least 4 glasses, while 4% even intend to down more than 8. About 10% said they would drink more when the Red Devils won than when they lost.
According to the Vias study, the number of accidents resulting in fatalities or injuries increases whenever the national team plays, particularly in the hour before a match and the hours immediately after it. The institute is thus appealing to everyone’s sense of responsibility and invites all supporters who will travel to see matches to designate a “Bob”[non-drinking driver] or find alternatives to driving if they have taken alcohol.
