#DontBeDaft: River Safety Series
River Sherbourne runs through Coventry so if you often stumble the town on a night out, listen up...
Seen as you'll live close to town or pass through on a regular basis, it's important that you take care and don't do something you'll regret!
The Royal Lifesaving Society launched the #DontDrinkandDrown campaign to make people aware of the importance of river safety.

Did you know?
- Excessive alcohol lowers your inhibitions which leads to having an impaired judgment. This can lead to you feeling that you can take more risks leading to scary consequences.
- It also limits your muscle ability and slows down your reactions to things around you meaning that you can struggle to make the simplest of movements.
- A quarter of all adult downing victims have been found to have alcohol in their bloodstream - we're not saying that you should never drink, just advising that take it easy and stay away from water.
Just don't be daft, it isn't worth it!
