Zero Alcohol Drink & Drive comes in June

The new traffic regulations, which introduce a 0% legal blood-alcohol limit in June 2020, means that drivers will not be allowed to drink alcohol and drive at all.

Restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine estates need to remind guests — especially foreign guests — of this and offer solutions.  For accommodation establishments:

  • Are you within walking distance of restaurants and pubs?
  • Are there ride-hailing services, taxis and shuttle services available for your guests?

The last thing any accommodation establishment wants  is — horror of all horrors — its guests being locked up in a SA prison.  If you have an on-site pub or restaurant, you’re sure to benefit from these regulations.

Will motorists be penalized more harshly than pedestrians?  Nearly half of the deaths that occur on South African roads are of pedestrians. High levels of alcohol abuse result in drunk people walking on the roads.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us have them.

    I have a patented solution available for this. I am Dr. Johan Bosch an entrepreneur with a doctorate in artificial intelligence. It will allow guests to enjoy themselves at establishments and get them home safe at a third of the cost of current service providers. Tourists and guests will also benefit from information on dangerous or unsafe zones in South Africa. There is patented Artificial Intelligence at its core. I would be interested to hear from any party willing to partner (crowdfund) this solution and with this buy equity in two of the companies which need to be launched before then.
