Christmas is also a time where we can all let our hair down and have a drink. It’s great to celebrate Christmas with a few special drinks over Christmas and New Year, lovely to let your hair down and enjoy the time of off work – a little festive break. Usually we visit our parents on Christmas evening and share a few drinks. However, we always walk round and walk back. We are lucky that they do only live around the corner so it is easy for us to do this. However, if we lived any further away, we would make sure that we got taxis. Drinking and driving is never worth it. We just have a zero alcohol approach when it comes to driving, so at Christmas, we adopt a zero driving approach when it comes to alcohol! Sounds simple, but a car can be a deadly machine and getting behind the wheel of a car after consuming one to many would just be far too dangerous and a stupid decision that could ruin many lives.
The Co-Op have designed this designated driver finder to encourage people to be safe and sound this Christmas. Definitely worth a go if you can't decide which of you is to drive - go on, give the wheel a spin.
Please make sure that this year as you celebrate Christmas you keep safe. If you are drinking then make sure that you do have a designated driver – a taxi is perfect, then you can all have a little tipple knowing that you are safe.
