Having a Designated Driver Will Save Lives

0 Comment

If you are going out drinking with your friends, the first thing you should decide on is who will be the designated driver. A designated driver is a driver who abstains totally from the consumption of alcohol at a social event so that they may drive their friends home safely afterward.

Some people mistakenly assume that the designated driver is the one who has had the least amount of alcohol to drink. Just because a person had less to drink, that does not mean they are sober enough to drive.

Plan how everyone is going to get to and from the event before anyone leaves for it. This way only one vehicle makes the trip and there is no dilemma about what to do with the “extra” vehicles at the end of the night.

If you don’t plan ahead or if the designated driver becomes the designated drunk, you still have many options to choose from. You could call a sober friend or family member, call a taxi, take transit or even consider walking home.
