Although December is a month for celebrating, too much holiday “cheer”
can lead to a serious San Diego
car accident. December is one of the busiest times on our country’s roadways,
and it is also one of the most dangerous.
In December 2015 alone, there were 840 people killed in crashes involving
at least one drunk driver or motorcycle operator. Given the risks, we
want to encourage both those hosting and attending holiday parties to
consider ways to deter the incidence of impaired driving this season.
If you are hosting a holiday party:
•Make non-alcoholic beverages available for party guests.
•Find alternative transportation for intoxicated guests.
•Arrange for an official designated driver for your party who will
not drink at all.
If you are attending a holiday party:
•Have something to eat before consuming alcoholic beverages.
•Eat high protein foods that will stay in your stomach longer and
slow down the absorption of alcohol into your system.
•Remember only time will eliminate the alcohol from your body.
•Know your safe limit.
•Never drink and drive
