Toowoomba puts the brakes on drink driving

StreetSmarts has teamed up with Toowoomba Liquor Industry Action Group to help people get home safely after having a few drinks. Toowoomba residents are now able to share a Maxi Taxi home—available every hour on Saturday nights between 10pm and 4am for a nominal fee.

With key drinking areas and homes widely dispersed across the city, the service is sure to be a popular option on a Saturday night. Pick up and drop off areas are well lit and protected from the weather. All vehicles are wheelchair accessible and fitted with on-board cameras to make sure passengers get home safely.

If you’ve got a great idea to curb drink driving in your community, or any other road safety initiative, apply for a StreetSmarts Community Road Safety Grant today. Apply for a StreetSmarts community road safety grant.
