Give your keys to your Designated Driver before you touch your first drink


Wednesday, July 31, 2013

That has become my "cause" now. I keep pushing everyone to drive safe. Call for a ride. Stay. Whatever you must do, just do not drive drunk. But as I was thinking it over. I realized that most of the time, the designated driver doesn't have the keys until its time to go. So, why not give the DD your keys before you even have one drop of anything to drink? That would take away that old argument where you say your not drunk, when it is obvious to everyone around you that you are. My son might still be alive today if he had given his keys to his DD at the beginning of the night. Maybe not, but he sure would have had a lot better odds on making it home safe that night.

So, let it be a lesson to everyone, give your keys to your DD before you even begin. And DD's, don't desert the people who have entrusted you to take care of them. Seriously. Keep an eye on them. You are the one making the sober choices, don't leave them to go do your own thing. Don't desert them because something that sounds more fun comes along. It just might cost that person their life. Can you live with the guilt of knowing that?? Think it thought bevore you bail out on someone.
