Responsible Hosts Should Ensure Guests Get Home Safely
It’s something we hear too often – “A man is facing various dangerous driving offences, including impaired driving, that killed one man and injured several other people,” according to a Global Calgary news story.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Keys Please® offers two professionally trained drivers to arrive at the client’s/ customer’s pickup location. One driver will drive the customer in his or her vehicle, as well as any guests, to their destination. The other driver follows to pick up his or her partner at the end of the trip. Drivers will perform multiple stops or drop-offs as long as the last destination is with the vehicle. Ginger Greenwood, General Manager with Keys Please® says, “Over the past 19 years we have encouraged many responsible individuals to use Keys Please®.”
Plus there’s no excuse to drive impaired anywhere in Calgary and surrounding areas, as Keys Please® also services Airdrie, Chestermere and Okotoks. This designated driving service is especially important during the summer. Backyard parties and barbecues begin as a simple night out to enjoy time spent with a few friends and have a few drinks. When people plan ahead, they can still enjoy a night out and get their vehicles home for the next day.
The hosts have a responsibility if alcohol is being served to their guest in their homes. The Canada Safety Council suggests that it’s worth knowing what is expected of commercial hosts to assist social hosts in protecting themselves from liability and more importantly, protecting their guests and others from tragic consequences related to over-service and excessive consumption of alcohol.
Hosts should be mindful of how much alcohol their guests are consuming. If a guest is visibly impaired or has consumed several drinks before driving, it is foreseeable that the guest will cause a crash.
Although summer offers the best weather and driving conditions, summer is also the time impaired driving increases as a night of innocent family and friends could turn deadly if a guest decides to get behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol. Have a plan. Get there safely. Keys Please® is in the business of ensuring a safer alternative to impaired driving.
