As an adult of legal drinking age, during the holidays I enjoy social drinking with friends and family.
It seems as though every social gathering, event and party is stocked with plenty of liquor, beer and wine during the holidays. Being the “Social Butterfly” that I am I get invited to tons of events during the holidays. In the past few years I had to decline many invitations because I didn’t have a car, but now that I have a car I intend to get it in this year. However, I also know that having a car also puts me in a catch 22 situation. Having a car I can get to my holiday destinations but I plan to take someone with me who doesn’t drink as my designated driver.
I know not everyone agrees with how I choose to celebrate when drinking and I understand. Sometimes, you can attend a party, have a drink or two right away and no more drinks for two hours or more. Depending on the amount of alcohol you consumed and your weight. height and some other factors you may be perfectly o.k. to drive. If you know your tolerance and some other factors in advance it’s very good knowledge to have. What if you’re out at a party and you were wondering if you were safe to drive? Wouldn’t it be great if you could answer a few questions and get a REAL answer in REAL time?
Perusing the internet I found this site that asks a few questions and based on your responses it will tell you if you’re safe to drive. I thought it was pretty awesome. The questions were easy and based on YOUR response, so the users should always be honest to receive the best response. While I never advocate drinking and driving, I know being informed is better than NOT being informed. Remember, KNOWLEDGE is POWER. During the holidays and all year long remember to PLEASE drink responsibly. Stay Safe.
