Like many Californians, you might have big plans to celebrate an unforgettable New Year’s Eve. Whether or not your plans involve alcohol, you might be put in danger simply by going out during the holiday. More people drink and drive during the New Year holiday than any other time of the year. If you are aware of the risks and stay responsible around alcohol, you may significantly reduce your chances of being in an accident.

One of the most important tips for being safe during any holiday is to know how to be safe around alcohol, states the Huffington Post. Before going out, you should have a plan on getting home without driving intoxicated. You might use a public bus, call a taxi or have a designated driver. It is also smart to pace yourself when drinking, and not to consume too much alcohol at once. A good rule of thumb is to have no more than one alcoholic beverage each hour, and to have snacks and water available as well. Also, it is not effective to “sober up” by drinking coffee. Coffee does nothing to metabolize the alcohol in your bloodstream – only time will do that.

When you are on the road, watch out for other drivers who appear intoxicated by swerving in and out of traffic, speeding or driving erratically. Stay away from these vehicles and call 911 to report the danger. When you follow these tips and are smart with your alcohol consumption, you stand a good chance of ringing in the New Year safely and memorably.
