How to Keep Guests From Drinking & Driving After a Party, New Haven, Connecticut

A lot goes into planning the perfect summer barbecue, from picking out the best cuts of meat to crafting refreshing cocktails. As the host, it’s also up to you to ensure your guests stay safe. Nothing ruins a party faster than the news of a guest getting arrested for drunk driving and needing help posting bail. Thankfully, keeping your friends out of trouble is simple if you follow these tips. 

How to Prevent Drunk Driving After Your Summer Barbecue 

1. Offer Sleeping Arrangements 

Depending on the layout of your home, having guests sleepover may be a little cramped. However, it’s far better than the alternative of a friend getting arrested and having to make bail. Simply set up cots and air mattresses for those who need a place to crash. You could also consider hosting the event near a hotel so that everyone can get their own room at the end of the night. 

2. Confirm Everyone Has a Ride

bailDon’t wait until the festivities are underway to ensure everyone has a ride home. Determine who will be acting as a designated driver at the start of the night, as well as who plans on using a ride-share service to get home. If there are any disputes over who’ll be driving, resolve them before your guests start drinking. This will prevent the event of getting pulled over, getting processed, and needing to post bail. 

3. Divert Focus From Drinking

When alcohol isn’t the entire focus of a party, guests are less inclined to drink. To deter your friends from overindulging on booze, serve up lots of mouthwatering treats, and set up lawn games that will keep everyone busy. Corn hole and volleyball are two favorites that are sure to please all of your guests.
