This official "Who’s DES Tonight?" Toolkit is designed for those organisations, venues and community groups that may wish to introduce the program into their community. We’ve done the hard work and designed and implemented a program that has proven to be successful. The licensees and community have embraced the concept, and the program has won state and national awards. Importantly, while in operation, Burnie has seen a corresponding reduction in both breathalyser offences and the incidence of crimes, such as vandalism and assault. A Designated Driver(DES) is a person who agrees to look after mates by not drinking alcohol and driving them home safely.
