New Year's Eve Safety Tips

New Year’s Eve is a great time to celebrate the end of a great year and new beginnings. But celebrations can sometimes get out of hand. If you are planning on celebrating the New Year by consuming alcohol, it’s a good idea to read these New Year’s Eve safety tips before you head out on the town.

Plan ahead.

Driving after one drink can be dangerous, even though many people believe it isn’t. A single drink can affect your perception and reaction skills. Because of this, it’s important that you have a plan to get home. Before you head out to celebrate, designate a non-drinking driver or set up a pre-paid cab for the night. You can also use ride-sharing apps like Uber or Lyft to get home safely after the ball drops.

Make sure your guests are safe.

If you are hosting a New Year’s party, it’s important to make sure your guests get home safely. As guests RSVP, make sure they have arrangements to get home. It’s also good to have the number of your local cab company available during the party and to have plenty of blankets and pillows, in case guests decide to stay the night.

Don’t let others drink and drive.

Stop friends and family from getting behind the wheel when they have been drinking. Even if you have to take their keys, causing a potential argument, it’s important that everyone stays safe this holiday season.

Happy New Year from Cottage Chevrolet!
