You probably have a party that you’ll be going to on New Years Eve. If you do, enjoy yourself and have lots of fun. But if you’re going to go out, hopping from party to party, and traveling the roads, make sure you stay safe. New Years Eve can be one of the most dangerous holidays to be out on the road because there will be a lot of drinking at parties. If you’re going to be one of those who will be traveling, here are a few tips to help you say safe:
New Year’s Eve Travel Tips
Stay off the roads –
This is the best piece of advice. This is good advice even if you’re sober because you cannot control the alcohol intake of others, or how they drive. The best way to avoid auto accidents on this holiday is to not even be on the roads at all. It’s not worth the risk. Decide what party will be the most fun and stay there. If it’s one where your friend doesn’t mind if you stay the night, then take a change of clothes. If you must be out on the road and aren’t fit to drive then use Uber or Lyft. There’s no reason to risk your life or someone else’s for a night of fun.
If you drink, bring a designated driver –
Enjoy your New Year’s Eve celebrations, but if you are going to drink on New Year’s Eve, plan ahead and have a designated driver. Be sure to thank the DD. Make them the hero of the evening, give them a special gift, or return the favor on a night they designate.
Snack and drink water –
Drinking water and eating snacks while you drink alcohol are other ways to keep yourself from becoming overly intoxicated during the evening’s festivities. Eat high protein snacks such as: peanuts, beef jerky, or protein bars. These will slow down the effects of the alcohol in your system. Never drink on an empty stomach. It will cause the alcohol to take effect faster than normal. Drink an 8-oz glass of water for every alcoholic beverage you consume. Remember to pace yourself, and you will lessen the harsh effects of a “morning after” hang-over, but remember if you are drinking, do not get behind the wheel.
