Being a 'host with the most' for New Year's

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

As everyone prepares for the New Year, a lot of people will be out and about celebrating tonight, but to make sure everyone is celebrating responsibly, police will be keeping a close eye on the streets.

A lot of people will be ringing in the new year tonight at local bars and having a good time, that is the good news; the bad news statistics tell us that some revelers will not do so responsibly.

New Year's day typically ranks as the deadliest day of the year for alcohol related accidents.  If you are one of the many planning on hosting a party, AAA has a few tips for the party host to keep in mind:

Offer drinks that are non-alcoholic, make sure all guests have a designated driver, have all the numbers to the local cab companies out and readily available, and lastly take the keys away from anyone who is thinking about driving while drunk.

A lot of people may not realize this, but just like a bar serving someone too much alcohol, a party host not only has a moral obligation, but they too can be legally responsible as well if a drunk driver comes from their party.

More than 25,000 DUI arrests have been made across Arizona this year alone.
