Letters To The Editor
If you are still looking for the perfect present this holiday season for an adult friend or family member, consider gifting yourself as a designated driver.
What better way to tell others you care about them than helping them get home safely from a holiday celebration or night on the town.
If you do, you won’t be alone.
More than 141 million American adults have been a designated driver or been driven home by one, according to a projection based upon a 2011 survey conducted by GfK Custom Research North America®.
Now that’s a reason to celebrate.
If you are planning on hosting a holiday party for adults, remember these tips to help have a safe celebration:
Serve food with your alcohol beverages and encourage your guests to space drinks throughout the night;
Offer non-alcohol beverages for the designated drivers;
Don’t refresh drinks as people can easily lose track of how much they’ve had; and
Stop serving alcohol one hour before the party ends.
A&B Distributing Company and Anheuser-Busch encourage adults who choose to drink to do so responsibly and to use a designated driver or alternate transportation if they may have had too much to drink.
Thanks to efforts like these and increased law enforcement, our nation is making progress in the fight against drunk driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk-driving fatalities have declined to a record-low level, down 49 percent since 1982.
We hope you have a great holiday and remember, it’s our collective responsibility to keep our roads safe.
