Tips for Safe Partying this New Year

By John Page on December 20, 2012 - Comments off

New Year’s Eve is one of the most popular holidays on which to attend or host parties. Guests have a blast staying up to ring in the New Year and celebrate with family, friends, or jubilant strangers. Unfortunately, many injuries and even deaths may result from New Year’s Eve excitement that got out of hand.

If you’re planning to throw a party this New Year, here are a few ways in which you can protect your guests and help everyone ring in 2013 happily:

  • If you’re serving alcohol, plan ahead. You can help prevent a serious drinking and driving accident in MO this New Year’s by planning ahead. Avoid serving alcohol to minors, and stop serving alcohol altogether about an hour before you expect the party to end. If any of your guests appear too impaired to drive safely, contact a cab or a sober friend to drive them home, or offer them a place to “crash” for the night.
  • Prepare for bad weather. Winter storms can easily strike over the New Year. Help protect yourself and others from car accident injuries by checking the weather forecast before you head out and by packing a winter safety kit in your vehicle. If storms are forecast, consider staying home or choosing a celebration closer to home.
