Summer is just around the corner. Along with the summer come parties, cook-outs and festivals. Along with those events come drinking cocktails. Don’t take chances driving if you have been drinking.

If you’re feeling buzzed, you are likely over the 0.08 limit and should not drive. Nearly half of all motor vehicle fatalities involve alcohol. About 2 in every 5 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related traffic crash at some time in their lives.

Some alternatives available to you if you choose to drink are: assign a designated driver, have someone tend bar so guests don’t over serve themselves, serve plenty of food since snacks can slow down the rate at which the body absorbs alcohol, offer a choice of non-alcoholic beverages, stop serving at least one hour before the party is expected to end.

If you are out and you or others feel that you shouldn’t drive home, call a cab or an Uber.
