Avoid drunk driving – injury lawyers in Owslesbury
One of the first things you are always told when you start learning to drive is that you must never drive when you are drunk. Some people will say that you should never drive when you have been drinking at all, as you cannot be sure of what your limit will be (the amount depends on the individual).
However, so many people still think that they are alright to drive after one or two drinks, despite drunk driving being one of the main causes of accidents on the road. If you have a car and are going to be somewhere that alcohol is served then there are a few things you can do to ensure that you won’t be tempted to have a few drinks and then get behind the wheel.
- Don’t drink. This is the most simple way to take your car from one place to another without having to worry. If you do want to go to an event and be able to drink then leave your car at home. This will remove the temptation to drink and then drive your car home.
- Use a taxi firm. If you are worried about not being able to get a taxi later on then you can pre-book one for the time that you want to leave. Otherwise, have a taxi number saved in your phone and some money put aside so that you are prepared for a taxi when you need to be.
- Have a designated driver. If you frequently go on nights out with the same group then think about taking turns to be the designated driver. If you only have to do this once every four times you go out then it shouldn’t make a huge impact on your social life, and with your friends watching over you to make sure that you are sober enough to drive you shouldn’t feel tempted.
- Don’t give into pressure. If someone else is trying to persuade you that you are ok to drive then refuse to enter into a conversation with them about it.
