The Road Safety Advisory Council participates in state-wide events such as the Falls Festival and Agfest.
Free breath testing is provided at these events to help people better understand the link between the amount of alcohol consumed and the breath-test reading. The test result is an indication only of a person’s reading and is not legally binding.
Falls Music and Arts Festival
The Road Safety Advisory Council is a major sponsor of the Falls Festival.
Each year there festival tickets to be won. Like our Facebook page to keep up to date.
There are competitions and free breath testing each day of the festival and on New Year’s day. This year, 4300 people were tested. The breath testing improves understanding of the link between the amount of alcohol consumed, how long ago it was consumed and the reading.
The test result is an indication only of a person’s reading and is not legally binding.
Alcohol readings depend on a wide range of factors including gender, weight, whether or not food was eaten while the alcohol was consumed and the amount of time between the last drink and the reading.
The body’s processing of alcohol varies from person to person and it is possible for two readings to vary, even if you have not had an alcoholic drink between readings.
