The National Council on Substance Abuse (NCSA) is seeking to educate drivers and road users about the dangers of substance use and its link to impaired driving.
To facilitate this, staff will be on hand at the SOL Warrens, St. Michael Service Station, tomorrow, Friday, March 23, from 7:30 a.m., to educate drivers about avoiding substance use when driving.
Talking points for the NCSA will include the illegality of using prohibited substances while in control of a moving vehicle and not driving or operating a vehicle if under the influence of a chemical substance such as alcohol, crack/cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, prescribed and over-the-counter medicine. NCSA staff involved in the community outreach will be wearing orange T-shirts.
The session is also geared towards facilitating the presence of NCSA staff in the wider community; highlighting the NCSA’s programmes and services among the Barbadian public; and providing the NCSA’s new contact information to members of the general public.
The NCSA’s new contact number is 535-6272 or 535-NCSA. The fax number is 535-6279, while the email address is email@example.com.
