Everybody enjoys a party with friends or family. It is even better to have them over to your home for a party, celebration or get-together. This can lead to drinking and eventually to drunk driving and it can be dangerous to operate a vehicle when drunk. It is an offense and can result in a DWI case. One of your guests can get behind the wheel of his motor vehicle after alcohol abuse and can cause accidents which can injure others
Preventing Drunk Driving after a Party
When having a party at home, you should be a responsible host and ensure that your guests drink responsibly and do not drive under the influence as it can be dangerous and lead to a DWI case. As the host of the party, you should take certain steps to make sure that they as well as others near them are safe.
While serving alcohol to your guests, you should make sure that it is consumed in moderation and they do not drive with a blood alcohol level (BAC) over the legal limit. There have been many DWI offenses with impaired driving resulting in many fatalities and injuries every year.
If you are a host, you should ensure the following:
- Food is served along with alcohol to ensure its effective absorption
- Serve more of non-alcoholic beverages as an alternative
- Have a person to monitor alcohol consumption and the quantity being served to the guests
- Request your guests to have a driver to drive them back home after a party if they have had large amount of alcohol
- Give them an option of staying at your home
- Request them to call a taxi or ask another guest to drive the drunken guest home
- Retain the keys of the guest who insist on driving after being drunk as you might also be held liable for accidents and fatalities caused by the driver. DWI laws in some states place liability on the host who served alcohol along with the driver himself.
Therefore, it is important to be well-informed about the alcohol being consumed in your party so that you can ensure the safety of your guests, drivers on the road as well as yourself from injury and liability.
