Party Hard -- But Drive Safely

Summer means barbeque parties for many in our area. For some, celebrating includes drinking alcohol. (Of course the legal drinking age is 21, and violations can mean steep penalties.) But if you or a loved one chooses to drink, our law firm wants to make sure you stay safe by following a few tips:

1. If you're drinking, designate a 100-percent sober driver.

The only completely safe approach is for a designated driver not to drink at all. Even one drink can impair a driver.

It's illegal to drive with blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent. For a 120-pound woman, just one small glass of wine can mean a BAC of 0.04, which can significantly affect driving. For a man of 180 pounds, just two beers can result in 0.04 BAC with similar results. Any amount of alcohol can be risky if not accompanied with food.

2. If you're drinking, consider a local driver or taxi service.

Using a local driver or taxi can be an enjoyable and reasonably priced way to ensure that everyone in your party has a safe and carefree night out.

3. If someone you know is drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. Offer to drive them or call a taxi or driver for them.

4. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact law enforcement immediately. Your actions could save a life. Do not try to pass a drunk driver. Try to stay as far back form the driver as possible and call 911. Remember, buzzed driving is drunk driving.

Have a safe and happy summer!
