Have a Designated Driver (DD)

Everyone knows that drinking and driving is bad news. Police can arrest you if you are driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or more (.01 if under 21 and .04. for commercial vehicle drivers). Make sure to have a Designated Driver (DD) or a safe ride home.

  • Plan who will be the DD ahead of time.
  • Input local transportation numbers in your phone.
  • Bring extra money, just in case.
  • If you have your car but don’t have a DD, leaving your car overnight may be your best option. A fine is a small price to pay for getting home safely! The total cost of a DUI can total between $10,000 - $15,000.
  • Take turns being the DD so one person isn’t the DD every time you go out.
  • Include the DD in the fun without encouraging them to drink.
  • Don’t let your friends ride with a DD who has started drinking.
  • If your DD starts drinking, call someone else or local transportation for help.
