Every year the holidays offer us a chance to attend lots of celebrations – which often includes parties where alcohol is served. Unfortunately, the holiday season is also a time when drunk driving becomes more common. We all know that drinking and driving is a terrible thing to do, but to make it easier to stay safe we’ve got a few suggestions for how to get a ride home if you’ve had too much to drink.
Get a Ride with Uber – In recent years, driving services such as Uber and Lyft have become very popular. It’s a fast, easy and relatively inexpensive way to get a safe ride home from virtually anywhere.
Call a Taxi – Yes, taxi companies still exist (even though many younger people don’t even consider this option). There are still taxi services available in virtually every town – so this is another good way to get home safely.
Designate a Driver – Using a designated driver is an ideal solution, since it costs nothing and you’ll know that you will be riding with someone you trust. The common problem with this is finding someone who is willing to refrain from drinking at the party – but if you can find someone willing to do it this is a great option for a safe ride.
