Always remember to make a plan for a safe ride home before the game starts. Too often a designated driver is chosen during the course of the evening and is often considered the “least drunk” person in the group. The designated driver should always be a sober driver who has not consumed any amount of alcohol. Designating a sober driver, calling a taxi, staying where you are, calling a sober friend or family member and using mass transit are the safest ways to ensure you do not drink and drive.
