The Old Mutual Concert in the Park at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden in Krudersdorp this weekend is special for a number of reasons. Firstly it features SAMA-multiple winner Zahara that will be performing. Secondly Old Mutual iWYZE will offer a free breathalyzer facility that enables music lovers the opportunity to check their own blood alcohol levels before leaving the venue.
To further support this initiative, iWYZE will assist in arranging transport at a reduced cost for people who discover that they are over the legal limit.
“iWYZE is launching this self-monitoring breathalyzer facility as a public service,” says Willem Smith, CE of Old Mutual iWYZE valuables insurance. “We strongly believe that people should take responsibility for their actions and knowing whether you are close too, or over the blood alcohol limit is part of that responsibility.” Music lovers simply need to visit the iWYZE stand near the entrance to the venue and qualified personnel will supervise the actual breathalyzer test and provide immediate test results.
“As a short-term insurer, we handle a worrisomely high number of insurance claims relating to accidents where drivers were under the influence of alcohol. We believe a major reason for this is that people think if they don’t feel ‘drunk’ then their behavior and reactions are not influenced. In reality, however, their ability to drive safely has often already been impacted and by the time their blood alcohol level exceeds the legal limit, they are a danger to themselves and other road users.
This free and convenient breathalyzer service will make it easy for people to establish if they are safe to drive, enabling them to make a wise choice before they hit the road,” says Smith.
