"PLANNING AHEAD"

This phrase is a cornerstone of our outreach efforts.  We encourage anyone over the age of 21 who plans to engage in celebrations that might involve alcohol to “plan ahead.”  This planning, which can include designating a sober driver, arranging for alternative means of transportation or simply staying overnight at the event destination, is one of the key reasons drunk driving fatalities are on the decline in California.

As we head into the Holiday Season and Season of Celebrations, we are listing some of the alternatives here in the Bay Area that you might consider as you ‘plan ahead!’
