Through the years, drunk driving has killed pedestrians, other drivers, passengers, and the drunk drivers themselves. In short, drunk driving puts many people at risk. Fortunately, there are several ways that a person can go out and enjoy some alcoholic drinks without getting behind the wheel. The following is a list of smart alternatives to drinking and driving:
An intoxicated person can call a taxi or ask a friend or bartender to call one in order to get home.
A group of friends going out for a few drinks can designate a sober driver for the evening. Friends can trade off this responsibility each evening they go out.
If someone is attending an occasion where there will be drinking, he or she can make a reservation at a hotel that is within walking distance of the club or bar.
A person can call a roommate or friend (who stayed at home instead of going out to the party) for a ride.
If someone is drinking at a house party, he or she can sleep at the house.
Many businesses have programs that will give you a free ride home such as AAA’s Tipsy Tow.
