April 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #161: Safe Parties

Tip of the Week

What does Mothers Against Drunk Drivers encourage in order to have a safe and sensible party environment?

1. Hosts should not rely on visual cues to tell them if someone is sober. MADD encourages hosts and hostesses to consider the amount of drinks a guest has consumed plus the amount of time spent not drinking.

2. MADD encourages people to forget about the percieved differences between wine, alcohol, and mixed drinks--a bottle of beer has the same amount of alcohol as a five ounce glass of wine. MADD encourages people to remember this factor when trying to help people stay responsible.

3. MADD's position on alcohol is quite clear. Underage drinking is illegal and should never be condoned or ignored by a party host. Situations like these can lead to violations of underage drinking law, and potential arrest for both underage drinkers and the host of the party.
