What can you do to prepare for any holiday that will have a higher percentage of drinkers on the road and DUI checkpoints? If you are drinking, there are a couple decisions that should be decided before heading out on NYE: Decide that you will not be driving the entire evening if you are drinking, locate a breathalyzer vending machine or bring you own device with you in case you want to monitor your BAC level throughout the evening (this will help you decide the best time to stop drinking in order to be sober enough to drive home), have a designated driver or taxi/Lyft/Uber ready to pick you up (arrange a ride ahead of time as NYE is the busiest night for ride services and often times everyone needs a ride at similar times).
In conclusion, I hope this post helps you think in advance of what your choice will be and how to prepare for the madness and excitement that NYE brings! If you think bar breathalyzer machines at alcohol serving businesses is a good idea, be sure to tell your local bar about the services Alco-Checkpoint provides!
Have a safe and happy new year!
