Be a responsible host

December 2011

When hosting Christmas parties ensure everyone enjoys themselves and that they return home safely to their families. The Waikato region has already been devastated by unnecessary deaths and injuries on our roads this year. Over the holiday season more families are likely to lose loved ones as a result of drink driving related crashes.

When hosting a party this holiday season –

  • Serve substantial food and have non- alcoholic drinks available
  • Keep an eye on everyone, especially young people
  • Make sure your guests get home safely – arrange transport, ensure they have a sober driver or let them stay overnight

Even one drink makes you three times more likely to crash. Reduce the risk – don’t drink and drive.
