Strathclyde Police have asked us to pass on the following saftey tips if you’re heading out over the festive season…
Plan ahead for your night.
Make sure your mobile phone is fully charged before heading out.
Remember challenge 25 – be prepared to provide proof of age when buying alcohol.
Watch your drinks – don’t give anyone the opportunity to spike them.
If you feel very drunk or unwell after just a small amount of alcohol, ask a trusted friend or a member of the club or pub management for help.
Keep bags and valuables with you at all times.
Think about what you’ve had to drink and whether you are safe to drive.
Where possible, stick with friends and don’t travel alone.
Make sure you have money to get home and look after your keys.
Always call a licensed taxi from your phone.
If walking home, keep to well lit, busy areas; always try to walk facing traffic so a car cannot pull up behind you unnoticed.
