A boring title, isn't it?
DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, you have heard it for about 1000 times or more. However please read it again and again. It holds a special meaning for each and every one of us.
Drinking is an adult choice, a freedom. Drinking helps people relax, lower their inhibitions, slows their reflexes which make them naughty and boisterous, joyful and amusing.
While this may sound like an attention-grabbing thing to do at a party or with your friends and it is not smart to do this before you drive. Keep in mind that the same acquired qualities, which might craft you the life of the party, may result in your vehicle being caught up in a horrible accident, endangering your own life, the ones of your associates and of blameless bystanders.
The belated brake reaction of a relaxed mind and the slight misjudgment of a drunken person, the need for a thrill or just some amusing may possibly change your life forever, if you have one left.
If you drink, then do not drive.
If you are a moderate passenger, please do not allow a person to drive who had drunk. Proffer to drive instead.
Do not sit as a passenger in an inebriated person's car - you may put in danger to your own life.
Before you choose your destination to drink, choose a designated driver. He should be the one who either does not, or will choose not to drink ANY alcohol and will drive you home.
We advise you to choose sober drivers in advance, on your list of attendees, relative to the number of vehicles nearby at the meet.
Please make sure you have a moderate ride to go back home in.
If that is not possible, either rent out a car or use public transport.

There is no tax charge on a director or employee within the benefits code on the provision of a car or motorcycle parking space at or near his place of work. Facilities for parking bicycles are also exempt.
The words 'at or near' are not defined in the Act. A rigid approach is not required. Apply the exemption in any case where parking facilities can be said to be within a reasonable distance from the place of work having regard to the nature of the locality. Do not deny the exemption simply because there is a car park nearer to the place of work.
The Transport Act 2000 allows local authorities to levy a charge on employers for workplace parking provided to employees. Where local authorities do so the employee will not be chargeable to tax on the cost of the car parking because of the exemption in Section 237(1) ITEPA 2003.
