Plan Ahead for a Happy, Injury-Free New Year

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on December 22, 2014

Few things make a better ending to the winter holiday season than a New Year’s party with family and friends. And many Texans feel that a New Year’s party isn’t complete without a New Year’s toast. If you’re planning to drink at a party or to serve alcohol to your guests this New Year, plan ahead to help everyone avoid a drunk driving accident and start 2015 safe and injury-free.

Here are some ways experienced Dallas accident lawyers reduce their own risk of a serious injury:

  • Plan ahead. How will you get home from the party? Decide on a sober route home before you leave the house on New Year’s Eve. Will you ride with a designated driver? Take a cab? Use the local bus routes? Or will you plan to stay at your destination, so you don’t have to travel at all?
  • Reward designated drivers. Designated drivers save lives. Whether you’re riding with one or hosting a party where someone has agreed to drive, show your designated driver a little extra love by giving a small gift or stocking the driver’s favorite non-alcoholic beverage, snack, or dessert.
  • Close the bar before the party ends. If you’re hosting the party, keep track of who is drinking and how much. A few hours before the party is scheduled to end, close the bar and start passing out coffee and dessert. If you want to break out the champagne to toast at midnight, keep the portions small – no more than a glass apiece.
  • Don’t be afraid to put your foot down. Call a cab for someone who needs one, offer to drive home one more passenger if your vehicle has room, or have non-sober guests sleep over. You could save a life.
