Before you go to a party or festival, it is smart to think about how to get home safely. Are you taking the taxi? Is there a Bob? Do you take the shuttle bus? Check with your friends what they are up to.

If you’ve taken alcohol or other drugs, you may think you’re fit enough to drive, but you’re not. You often don’t feel it, but under the influence, you react much less quickly than when you are sober. Fatigue is also a problem.

Energy drinks, coffee, and other stimulants won’t help you get sober and fit again. So… let yourself be taken home, whether that is by taxi, car, bus, tram, or train. Are you going by car? Then agree in advance who the Bob is. Only get in if your driver is sober and let your Bob drive focused. Hands above the seat belts.
