Don't let date night lead to a DWI

POSTED ON: 09/10/2020

You may think date night and alcohol are a great pair. If you have a way to get home from that date safely without drinking and driving, having a few drinks isn’t usually an issue for most people. But too many times, people drink without any plan on how they’ll get home safely. Unfortunately for some people who choose to drive after drinking, this fun outing can also be full of DWI arrests, loss of life, and guilt that lasts a lifetime. That's no way to impress your date.

Spend your money on your date, not your bail

You thought those gifts to impress your date were expensive? A DWI arrest can cost thousands of dollars including attorney fees, fines, court costs, and other expenses. Dating already digs into your pocketbook, so don't let this be another thing you have to pay for! If you're driving after the date, enjoy non-alcoholic mocktails at dinner or go to the movies where alcohol isn’t as tempting.

Drive your date wild, but don't drive your date drunk

Another way to avoid drunk driving is to have a plan BEFORE you start drinking. Your safe driving plan may include public transportation, a designated driver, a ridesharing service, or a taxi. Think of it as part of the fun of your date. Having a chauffeured ride to take you around town for an outing sounds really special. You'll get bonus points from your date for being so thoughtful and responsible.

The perfect match: Flowers, chocolates, and safe driving

There is something far more dangerous on date night than forgetting the flowers, chocolates, or dinner reservations: drinking and driving. If you do drink a small amount of alcohol and plan to drive only after sobering up, make sure you understand the effects of alcohol on your body. Alcohol level is measured by the weight of the alcohol in a certain volume of blood, and this is called BAC (blood alcohol content or concentration). If you’re wondering how many drinks you can have and legally drive, the best and safest answer is zero. Remember that buzzed driving is drunk driving.

Don't let date night lead to a DWI

A cocktail or glass of wine with dinner should be a small part of a beautiful, lasting memory, not the prelude to a deadly, drunk driving crash. Drive sober or don't drive. To find out how Smart Start of Alabama is helping to separate drinking from driving, call us or fill out our contact form.
