Drinking and driving is extremely dangerous, and should never be done. It is important to plan ahead if you intend to drink, so that you will not have to drive home. Some good options if you wanted to drink at bar or some other location where you will need to travel to return to your home are having a designated driver or taking a taxi or an Uber.
By ensuring that you do not drink and drive, you can not only help to keep yourself safe, but also help to keep other people safe.
