Do you allow your teen to take the car on a night out – and is he/she responsible enough to avoid drunk driving? Will your matric pupil be going with friends on the matric holiday? A few weeks ago the Arrive Alive website was contacted by a producer for an insert on Carte Blanche on teen drinking and driving. We were able to share some links and refer to a few who might be able to provide material for the documentary.
We are pleased to reveal that this very important topic is to receive airtime tonight!

Carte Blanche reports on tender fraud that seems to know no bounds.
