Get Home Safely This Holiday Season

Celebrate The Season Responsibly With These Safety Guidelines

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for friends and family to come together and celebrate the season. With a plethora of holiday parties to choose from, your schedule is sure to be filled with cheer and your glass with eggnog. Just make sure that with so much festive activity, making a plan to get home and dream of sugarplums does not become a low priority. Use these safety tips to make sure you and your loved ones can enjoy the holiday season safely.

  1. Designate A Driver: It may seem like a no brainer, but actually designating a person to stay sober and get everyone home can be easy to forget. And if you remember halfway through the party, odds are it will be too late. Make sure that if you are driving an automobile to an event, someone is committed to seeing it—and you—safely home.
  2. Mix It Up: Every drink in your hand at a cocktail party does not need to be an alcoholic one. With so many fun seasonal flavors, consider mixing a mocktini instead so you can keep yourself hydrated and your head clear for the journey home.
  3. Call A Cab: In the event your designated driver slips up on the sobriety front, keep a cab company’s number handy. If you own a smartphone, you can also download transportation applications (like Uber.com) for an alternate, sometimes-easier option for securing a ride.
  4. Be A Friend: You can help save a life by keeping drunk drivers off the road. If you notice your friend who is planning to drive has had too much, take their keys and help them find an alternate mode of transportation home. If you see a car driving erratically, pull over and call the police. You can never be too careful when it comes to protecting the roadways.
