If you see someone who’s been drinking and needs a ride, please help them get home safely. You could save the life of someone you love.

When I see friends drink too much, I find the courage to help them get a safe ride home. A few moments of feeling uncomfortable is worth it to keep my friends from doing something they’ll regret. I try to be the friend I’d want if my judgement was impaired.
