New Year's Eve is the biggest party of the year, with celebrations often involving a few adult beverages. Everyone gathered to ring in 2019 will want to have a memorable night and having a few drinks is a great way to unwind, relax, and enjoy the company of friends. There’s nothing wrong with drinking responsibly - as long as you don’t get behind the wheel of a car. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in place before you go out so that you never have to drink and then drive. Here are some tips for celebrating New Year’s Eve while staying safe.
Stay Sober - It sounds obvious, but skipping alcohol altogether is the best way to ensure you don't drink and drive.
Designated Driver - Choose someone to take on the responsibility of designated driver for the evening. At the next party, switch off, so everyone has a chance to enjoy themselves safely.
Bring the Party Home - Invite friends to your house to celebrate with you. Offer to let them spend the night, this way they'll stay off of the roads and can drink as much as they want without worrying about how to get home.
Limit Your Drinking - If you do decide to have a glass or two of bubbly, consume only one beverage per hour and drink plenty of water. If you get carried away, find an alternative ride home. The most important thing is to avoid getting behind the wheel when you’re impaired. You can worry about getting your car back the next day.
