Being Safe {Halloween 2010}

Halloween means dark streets full of little kids distracted by candy and costumes. That makes it especially important to start planning a safe and sober ride home from whatever fun you'll be having that night - so your evening doesn't turn into a real nightmare.

Whether at a Halloween party, a costume contest at a bar or trick-or-treating through the neighborhood, many of us will be on the road this weekend. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council are reminding everyone that the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you head out for your Halloween festivities. See below for some site you may what to check out to ensure your safety on Halloween!

· Designated Driver Drink List - One of the most important things you can do before going out is designate a sober driver. If you're throwing a Halloween party, make sure to offer non-alcoholic drinks for the sober drivers. Check out this Facebook tab with 50 non-alcoholic party drink recipes.

· Alternative Ride Locator - Check out this Facebook tab with a list of nationwide alternative ride programs that can help keep your readers safe.

Also, be sure to visit the Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving website where you can sign a pledge not to drink and drive; play "Spot the Difference," an interactive game that simulates the effects of buzzed driving; and watch a real-life video about how buzzed driving changed one woman's life.

We encourage you to plan ahead and designate a sober driver before you begin celebrating. Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.
