New Year: Who is your designated driver?

By December 30, 2014Addiction

Move over Christmas, New Year’s is on the way! Now that the gift giving and large meals are over, it’s time to have some fun with your friends and light up the town in style. Wild parties and New Year’s go hand-in-hand, as it’s a huge celebration to welcome in the new year.

The problem, however, is that it often includes large amounts of alcohol, which isn’t very good for your body and even worse if you need to drive back from your party in the late hours of the morning and when people drive home drunk, you could wind up in a car accident.

Oh, and by the way: if you’re over the legal drinking limit, you may be welcoming in the new year with a hefty fine from the police!
That’s why it’s so important to have a designated driver – someone who won’t drink – to drive you home.

The main problem with having a friend as a designated driver is that they might also want to drink and party and this defeats the purpose of having a designated driver.

If you happen to have a friend who isn’t overly fond of drinking, but likes to party (without the drink), then you’re in luck. If not, there’re a variety of taxi services that can take you to and from a venue on New Year’s. Here’re two:

Sport Taxi (Book Now): http://sport24hrs.co.za/book-now/

Or Call them on 021 447 4444 / 0861 TAXI CAB

Elite Taxi’s http://elitetaxis.co.za/

Or Call them on 021 447 9003

If you know you’re going to party late, book now and ensure you have a safe trip home. Otherwise, call a relative who’s near and can pick you up from the party. Whatever you do, DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
