Planning ahead before you have any alcoholic drinks is the best option. However, if you do drink it is important to utilize ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft, or call a sober friend to pick you up.

If you are hosting a party where alcohol is being served, make sure that all guests leave with a sober driver.
