With Christmas having just passed, the holiday season is coming to a close tonight on New Year's Eve. At Auto Credit Express, we understand how important it is to have that quality time with family and friends. Also, we understand the importance of staying safe while doing so.
Friends Together Aagain – Let's celebrate!
The holiday season is a great time to reunite with old friends. Sometimes we get carried away in the festivities and forget about moderation. We consume more than we can hold. If you have ever been in this kind of situation, you may understand the importance of the designated driver. Staying safe during the holidays should always play a part so these kinds of reunions may continue.
Designate a driver: When going out, it is always a good idea to go in groups. This way, there can be a designated driver. It may seem like you're restricting one person from having fun and think that offering them to have just one drink won't do any harm.
Don't Set Off A Chain Of Events By Tempting Your Designated Driver
Why can't they have just one? Encouraging your designated driver to have “just one drink” is tempting fate. Don't be an enabler. Even though it is just one drink, that might be all it takes depending on their height, weight and how much food they've eaten that day or night. And who knows what that one drink could lead to – one becomes four, and now your driver is three sheets to the wind. Are you ready to pony up for a cab to take you and your friends home?
And keep in mind that even though you may not be driving, you should still drink responsibly. Overdoing it could lead to alcohol poisoning, which could be fatal if not addressed. Watching out for ourselves and each other is something that we should all be mindful of. Doing so will ensure that everyone has a good time.
As We See It
No matter the time of the year, safety should always remain a top priority at social events. If hosting, always keep an eye out for those who are severely intoxicated and be sure to have some extra blankets and pillows ready. They will appreciate it, and you will too. And after all the festivities are over and you are ready to buy your next car, we'll be here to help you get an auto loan when you need one.
