After the drink-drive limit was lowered in a law change last year, many restaurants and bars have been hit hard, especially those in Tauranga said Dean Teddy, Hospitality NZ BOP representative. Hospitality NZ has launched a new campaign to prevent consumers being put off by having a social drink after work. A guide to how much consumers can drink without worrying about being over the limit has been launched based on research from ESR. ‘Know your limit’ is a rule of thumb guide for men and women that allows for three standard drinks over two hours for men and two standard drinks over two hours for women. “We are certainly not advising people that it’s okay to drink and drive but it is okay to get out and enjoy a couple of drinks responsibly, preferably over a meal,” said Teddy.
