Keep the booze at bay before and while driving
Keep within prescribed limits. Remember, your goal is to get to your destination safe, not sorry.
Avoid activities that might distract you while driving including making or receiving calls, surfing the internet, or watching movies using your mobile phones or other electronic gadgets.

Saddle up, baby!
