How to make sure everyone gets home safely on a night out
If you are planning a big night out then there are lots of things to plan. You will want to perfect the guest-list so that there are no arguments and everyone has a good time together, you want the perfect venue and the right mix of dancing and socialising. However, if you are planning a big night out with friends, you need to think about the whole night, so that you have planned how to get everyone home safe at the end of the night as well. Nothing ruins a night out like losing a member of your party at the end, or someone being injured or attacked on their way home.
- Stick together. The best way to ensure that everyone gets home safely is to all go home together. If you can arrange for friends to stay at your house, or to get separate cabs from one address, this is safer than splitting up when you are still at the club or on the street.
- Book cabs in advance. Instead of having to wait for cabs to become available, you can book cabs to come and pick you up when you think your night will be over. You can always rearrange the time with the cab service later in the night, but will at least know that your cab is booked.
- Wait inside the club. Instead of waiting on the street for your cab, wait inside the club, or just outside with door staff until your cab arrives. You are more vulnerable out on the street than you are in the club.
- Don’t drink too much. It is easy to forget all of your safety measures if you have had too much to drink, so regulate your drinking throughout the night in order to be sure that everyone gets home safely.
