When I was younger, I worked as a bartender. I think this is partly why I am usually up late at night. Old habits die hard. One of the biggest issues that worried me in my job at the time was making sure people did not pass their limits and were safe to drive, had a cab or a designated driver.
This is still a concern for me as drunk driving causes so many accidents and fatalities. It is truly a preventable occurrence and we should all be aware for ourselves, our friends and colleagues.
There are ways to avoid drunk driving and one of the most important is to know your limits when it comes to alcohol consumption. A tool that can assist you is a safe driving calculator which can help you out. As we approach the season of holiday parties, this becomes even more of an issue.
It is simple to either walk or take a cab, find a designated driver, or drink at home and do not jeopardize the life of yourself or of others. Don’t take foolish chances. Life is way too short as is.
Be careful. Be responsible. Live long and prosper.
