Since the Myans' were wrong and the snow and ice have stayed to the north, I am sure that my party people will be out in droves tonight lookin for a spot to bring in the New Year and perhaps score a kiss at thestroke at midnight. The Police will be out in full force as well tonight so yuse your head and plan ahead if your going out tonight. Maybe you are throwing a bash at your house or headed out tonight, whatever the case may be, here are some Tips to keep you safe tonight as we celebrate another year on this rock we all call home.

-Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility as the host.

-Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests.

-Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests.

-Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.

-Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home.

If you are attending New Year's Eve parties and celebrations:

-If you drink, don't drive.

-Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins.

-If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up.

-Or, stay where you are until you are sober.

-Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.
