Let’s face it: nobody wants to be the party-ruining “nag” who reminds everyone not to drive or to accept a ride from anyone who isn’t sober. But when you invite friends, family, and other loved ones over for a party, your actions can mean the difference between one of the people you care about staying safe, or facing charges for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI).
If you’re throwing a party, here are just a few of the steps you can take to help your partygoers avoid a drunk driving charge in New Hampshire:
- Don’t let friends drive drunk. If you suspect a visitor cannot safely drive, take his or her keys away. You may want to set up a central â€œkey depository,â€ such as a bowl by the front door, for everyone to put their car keys in as they arrive. Don’t give the keys back unless you’re convinced the person can safely drive or you know the person is going home with a sober driver.
