Help Prevent Seattle Drunk Driving Accidents This Fall

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on October 4, 2015

Seattle Car AccidentsFall football games are a great way to have fun, see friends, and relax after a hard work week. If you’re hosting a weekend get-together for a Seahawks game or other fun fall event, your efforts can go a long way toward protecting those you love and preventing a drunk driving accident from causing serious harm.

Here’s how:

  • Provide options for safe travels. Post the phone numbers for local cab companies next to your phone, provide a “crash zone” in your house for visitors who should not be driving, or sort out designated drivers ahead of time so that everyone has a sober ride home.
  • Spoil your designated drivers. Serve their favorite foods, keep their glass full of their preferred non-alcoholic beverage, or offer to cover their fuel costs. Make it clear that you appreciate designated drivers and you’ll encourage your friends to appreciate their help as well.
  • Supervise service. Pay attention to who is drinking at your party, what they’re drinking, and how much. When the third quarter begins, put the alcohol away and pass around the coffee and dessert in order to help your guests “sober up” before they head home.
  • Don’t hesitate to say no. If a guest can’t drive safely but insists on getting behind the wheel, don’t hesitate to confiscate their car keys or block their vehicle into your driveway. You could save several lives.

If you’re injured by a drunk driver this fall, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced Seattle car accident injury lawyer for help. Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. can be there for you.
