Consumption of alcoholic beverages has become an important part of modern society. We consume drinks to celebrate, to mourn, to socialize, and for many other reasons. On many occasions, the consumption of alcohol is away from where we live. That leaves the one drinking with a problem of how to get home.
Drinking or not, there are things you can do to avoid being involved in an alcohol-related Green Bay motorcycle accident. Here are some of things you can do:
- Plan ahead. If you intend to drink, plan your evening in advance and leave your motorcycle at home. Not having it there to tempt you to ride will keep you from making poor decisions.
- One and done. If you have your bike with you and have more than one drink, plan on not riding at all. Call a friend or call a cab.
- Be cautious. While riding, keep an eye out for others on the road who appear to be driving erratically. Drivers under the influence are extremely dangerous to motorcycles.
- Sleep it off. Do not get back on your motorcycle until you know you have no alcohol in your system. Waiting until the next day after a good sleep is the best way to ensure you are sober.
