Drink Responsibly

Editor:

Picnics, barbecues, and end-of-summer parties are a Labor Day holiday tradition here in Arizona. We at Golden Eagle Distributors, Inc. want to remind everyone to practice personal responsibility this holiday weekend to keep the celebrations safe.

If you're hosting a party, be sure to serve non-alcoholic beverages for your guests who are designated drivers and those who don't drink. Also, serve guests only one drink at a time. If you're attending the party and you choose to drink, please do so responsibly.

If you're the designated driver, you'll be joining more than 122 million American adults who have either been a designated driver or been driven home by one.

Fortunately, our nation has made significant progress in the fight against drunken driving during the Labor Day holiday. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Labor Day holiday drunken driving fatalities are down 32 percent since 1982.

If we all do our part by exercising personal responsibility and choosing a designated driver, this Labor Day can be safe for everyone. Responsibility matters.
