The Malta Police Force have launched a campaign urging us to keep safe by making use of taxis this Christmas season. The cute ad, which was launched earlier today, depicts a group of friends on their way to their destination by cab, and arriving home safely to kiss mum goodnight.
With the festive season traditionally bringing in all sorts of extra social events to attend, the campaign is a great reminder that there are other options apart from driving yourself to said events.
By taking a taxi, you can enjoy a few drinks and not have to worry about being over the limit and unfit for driving yourself and your friends home. You can also free your mind from the hassle of finding a parking space, being late after having spent ages looking for said parking space or indeed, remembering where you parked your car.
And by sharing a cab and booking in advance it isn’t always as expensive as you might have thought. Pro tip: it doesn’t even have to be the white taxis used in the ad.
With ‘car culture’ being as huge as it is in Malta, we often rule out taking taxis, but they are a safe way to put our minds, and our family and friends’ minds, at ease over the festive period.
