new-years-hatNew Year’s Eve: Making It a Safe One

New Year’s Eve. It’s a night to celebrate the upcoming year and to bid farewell to the last. The key to making this New Year’s Eve a safe and memorable one is to plan ahead so that you do not put yourself in a situation that you will regret. There are so many resources and options available today to ensure that you and your friends never have to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking.

Share Your Plan and Stick to It
Even the best of plans can go wrong if you do not commit to making them happen. If you are sure to let everyone in your group of friends know your intentions for how you will get home on New Year’s Eve, this may help prevent you from making a poor decision after you have been drinking. Your friends can also hold you accountable, which will also help you to stick to your plan.

Plan to Stay Over
To be completely sure that you will not have to make any quick decisions about your transportation home, make plans to stay overnight wherever you are going to the party. Whether the celebration takes place at a hotel or a close friend’s home, planning to stay where you are will ensure a safe evening. Last minute hotel bookings can be made through an app called Hotel Tonight.

Do Not Drive at All
Even if you have not had a single drink all evening, it is best to avoid driving on New Year’s Eve. There are plenty of drivers who will not make the same responsible choices that you plan to. This puts you at high risk for being involved in an accident with a drunk driver that is not even your fault.

Ride Sharing
If you must travel on New Year’s Eve, a safe choice would be to take advantage of ride-sharing services such as Lyft and Uber. Since the rates are generally higher on holidays, a good site to visit is Ride Guru. They will compare the rates for taxis and ride-sharing vehicles and you can choose to the best deal to your destination.
