Halloween means dark streets full of little kids distracted by candy and costumes. That makes it especially important to start planning a safe and sober ride home from whatever fun you'll be having that night - so your evening doesn't turn into a real nightmare.
Whether at a Halloween party, a costume contest at a bar or trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, many of us will be on the road this weekend. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are reminding everyone that the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you head out for your Halloween festivities.
Here are a few ideas to keep Halloween safe for not only the kids but also for the adults and other drivers on the road.
·Designated Driver Drink List - One of the most important things you can do before going out is designate a sober driver. If you're throwing a Halloween party, make sure to offer non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers. Also check out the list compiled on the Facebook tab with 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes.
·Alternative Ride Locator - They've created a Facebook tab with a list of nationwide alternative ride programs that can help keep your readers safe.
·Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving website - Head over to sign a pledge not to drink and drive; play "Spot the Difference," an interactive game that simulates the effects of buzzed driving; and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman's life.
Thank you in advance for your help! This Halloween, let's work together to put an end to buzzed driving. Don't let ruin your Halloween with a DUI - or worse. Remember to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you begin celebrating. Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.
