Once again, the Orihuela Costa Taxi Association has teamed up with N332 as part of the #chooseright campaign, reminding everyone that taking a taxi is the safer option if you´re out to enjoy yourselves.

This year´s campaign was launched in conjunction with the Cabo Roig St Patrick´s Day fiesta on the Orihuela Costa, with the event organisers themselves also behind the campaign, featuring the poster in the official guide, as did the Costa Blanca People who are also supporting the campaign.

Taxis across Orihuela will be displaying the N332 #ChooseRight stickers, reminding drivers to make the right choice when partying.

Alcohol or drugs have no place in driving, and are one of the biggest contributing factors to serious and fatal road traffic incidents.

Some people still think that “one for the road” is an acceptable practice, especially as if is not always easy to recognise how alcohol, drugs, or both, affects us.

Spain has a much lower permitted alcohol limit than some other countries, including the UK, but the only safe limit is zero.

That is why if you are going out, whether for St Patrick´s Day or any other celebration, it is important to #chooseright. Taking a taxi is one option. You could also designate a driver who won´t consume alcohol, a generous thing might also be for a group to pay for the driver´s soft drinks during the event.

As for St Patrick´s Day on the Orihuela Costa, if you do want to take a taxi, you can telephone them on 96 676 10 88 or 96 673 30 38. Enjoy the party, have a fantastic time celebrating this unique day, but remember, #ChooseRight.
