Cinco de Mayo Safety Tips

Experts In This Article

Cinco de Mayo is a widely celebrated holiday annually across the United States. That means lots of people out celebrating and going to home or office parties. While spending a night out with coworkers and friends may be fun, too much of a good time can lead to serious and life-changing accidents. Do you know how to stay safe for Cinco de Mayo?

Top 10 Cinco de Mayo Safety Tips

We are sharing some safety tips to help make sure the roads are safe for our families and yours.

  1. Designate a sober driver before the party begins. Even if you have only had a couple of drinks, you may be impaired and should not drive. Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving.
  2. If you do not designate a sober driver, use the NHTSA’s SaferRide app to phone a taxi, public transportation, a sober friend or family member. The average driving under the influence citation costs approximately $10,000. These are all cheaper alternatives and can save lives.
  3. Never let a friend drive intoxicated. Arrange a safe ride home for them.
  4. Do not ride in a vehicle with a driver who is intoxicated.
  5. Always buckle up. This is your best defense against drunk drivers.
  6. Take the keys from anyone who is thinking of driving home after drinking. Call them a cab.
  7. Pace yourself and do not drink too much too quickly.
  8. Eat. It is important to eat before you head out for festivities. Do not drink on an empty stomach; you will become intoxicated more quickly.
  9. Before you leave your house, write down the numbers for your local ridesharing or cab companies.
  10. Do not drive distracted. Texting while driving is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents in the U.S.
