Don’t drive if you have been drinking at all.
Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.
Whenever you know you will be drinking alcohol, go with a designated driver.
Operating under the influence will cost you money.
Watch out for cars driving with headlights off at night, driving considerably below the speed limit.
If you’re hosting a party, make sure your guests are sober and do not drink and drive.
If possible, stay where you are and sleep it off.
Be safe this holiday season
