With spring break right around the corner, many people are getting ready to visit new places, hang out by the pool, and relax in good company. Of course, many people who take advantage of this vacation time will want to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages to unwind. As a result, the roads can become a dangerous place if drivers do not refrain from getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. For this reason, it is important that people traveling during spring break practice safe driving habits to avoid serious car accidents.
Because our Clearwater personal injury lawyers care about your safety, we have listed various tips that can help you and your friends avoid a drunk driving accident, which can be found below:
1. Celebrate Spring Break at a Friend’s House
Sometimes, spending vacation from the safety of a friend’s home can be the best option. You can avoid sharing the roads with impaired drivers and enjoy the company of your closest friends and family members. To make this more fun, you and your friends can rent movies, play games, barbeque, and much more, all while knowing your entire group of friends is safe.
2. Book a Hotel Room for a Couple Nights
For those who love to travel to new places, booking a hotel room at a new destination can be fun and safe. Since warm weather and clear skies are some of the most sought-out amenities during spring break, you and your friends can select a hotel that has everything you need right outside your room door, so you never have to leave the hotel. By doing this, your group can avoid getting on the road where drunk drivers may be.
3. Collect Keys Before Consuming Alcohol
If you and your friends decide to have a few drinks, be sure to collect everyone’s keys and have a designated sober person hide the sets of keys to ensure no intoxicated persons get behind the wheel. In addition, this can ensure that you and your friends will contact an Uber or taxi service if any persons choose to leave.
4. Plan on Taking a Taxi or Uber Anywhere You Go
Because you and your friends may decide to go out to dinner or other places while on spring break, it may be wise to contact a taxi service or an Uber driver. By doing so, you can ensure that you and your friends do not get behind the wheel after consuming alcoholic beverages.
