Safe Party Planning

Have fun, but stay safe! If you need a safe ride home, call one of these taxi companies to pick you up. A cab fare is much cheaper than a DUI!

If you are the host:

  • Make sure non-alcoholic drinks are offered.
  • Serve fatty foods to prevent dehydration.
  • Avoid serving salty foods.
  • Serve plenty of water.
  • Make sure everyone you serve is of legal drinking age.
  • Do not let guests mix their own drinks.
  • Take up keys at the door, and only give them back to a sober driver.
  • Make sure your fire alarm is working.

If you are going out:

  • Designate a driver before your first drink.
  • Travel in groups.
  • Keep track of how much you’ve had to drink.
  • Alternate alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Never leave a drink unattended.
  • Never accept a drink from a stranger.
  • Buckle up, and make sure everyone else in your car is buckled.
  • Drive cautiously because there may be intoxicated drivers on the road, especially between 10pm and 2am.
