On Saturday, December 17th, attorney Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today to provide tips for having a happy and – more importantly – safe holiday season. Watch the segment:
With the holiday season comes a lot of social obligations and events, including parties. While alcohol is present at many of these types of events, there are some things you can do as either a host or a guest to ensure everyone’s safety.
If you’re hosting, be sure to have plenty of non-alcoholic drinks and food available to your guests. Keep an eye on your guests’ consumption, and don’t hesitate to take keys from anyone who has imbibed a little too much.
As a guest, planning ahead is key. If you’re expecting that you will drink, be sure to arrange a designated driver, or plan to use a ride-sharing service like Uber to get home. You should also keep an eye out for your fellow party-goers. Being proactive is key; don’t let a fellow guest leave if they’ve had too much. The risk just isn’t worth it.
Daggett Shuler is very involved in reducing occurrences of drinking and driving in our community. Their long-standing community initiative – the Safe Sober program – encourages the Triad to make the right choice when it comes to drinking and drug use. While initially aimed at high school students during prom season, the program has evolved over the past few years to incorporate the entire community, including adults and younger students. It takes a community working together to reduce the risk of harmful behaviors, and Daggett Shuler is proud to lead the way.
In fact, Safe Sober is now a year-round program with many ways to be involved. The t-shirt contest – a long-standing facet of Safe Sober – is always popular among high school students, and the winning design will be unveiled in the spring. Several local Y summer programs also enjoy the benefits of the Safe Sober program, spreading the message (and shirts) to pre-teens and younger kids. Daggett Shuler is also excited to announce Safe Sober Night at the Winston-Salem Dash, coming in April. This event is open to the entire Triad and promises to be a great day at the ballpark.
Later in the episode, Griff also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Keith Grandberry. They talked about current news items and political issues.
