Make It to the Table: Don’t Drink and Drive this Thanksgiving Eve
The Wednesday night before Thanksgiving is a cultural phenomenon called “Thanksgiving Eve,” an evening associated with drinking and a big night for bars.
So everyone can make it to the table this Thanksgiving:
- Plan ahead and designate a sober driver before the first drink.
- Use public transportation, a taxi or a ride share service.
- Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app available on Google Play for Android devices and Apple’s iTunes Store for IOS devices. SaferRide allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend, and identifies the user’s location so he or she can be picked up.
- If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact local law enforcement. Whether riding or driving, always wear your seat belt.
