The coming months will bring about all kinds of festive events, such as proms, graduations, birthdays, and weddings! There is so much to consider when setting out to any celebration – especially when new and young drivers are involved. Safety should be the most important priority:

  • When hiring a limo service – obtain references to be certain the company is reputable.
  • If using a personal vehicle, check for proper maintenance (full gas tank, appropriate tire pressure, working seat belts, tailgate and headlights, wipers, fluids, etc.).
  • Limit the number of passengers in a vehicle to reduce distractions.
  • Have the conversation to not drink and drive before handing over car keys.
  • Assign a designated driver.
  • Offer to drive your loved ones to and from parties.
  • Double check that phones are charged, ring tones are audible, and speed dial numbers are programmed for emergencies.
  • Establish check-in times before the celebrating begins.

Whatever the occasion, it is a special and exciting time for young adults.  Encourage them to have fun and support them to do it safely.
