Never Drink and Drive: Amica Shares Safety Tips

LINCOLN, RI (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

The holidays are filled with festive parties, and alcohol will be served at many of those gatherings. So Amica Insurance is offering tips on how to be a responsible host and help prevent drunk driving.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reports that someone is killed by a drunk driver every 40 minutes. Additionally, approximately half a million crashes occur each year in which police say alcohol was present.

Thats why Amica is sharing the following tips from MADD:

  • Have nonalcoholic options or mocktails available for guests who dont want to consume alcohol.

  • If planning to serve alcoholic punch, use fruit juice or other noncarbonated bases. Alcohol is absorbed into the blood faster if its combined with a carbonated base.
  • Serve food so guests can avoid drinking on an empty stomach.
  • Playing games is a great way to keep guests entertained so that they limit their alcohol consumption.
  • Everyone in attendance should designate a driver who has not been drinking.
  • Have the phone number of a taxi company available for anyone who needs a ride, or offer guests who have been drinking to stay overnight.
