Many people made lofty resolutions this year. According to a poll from ComRes poll, some of the most common resolutions included:

  • Exercise more
  • Lose weight
  • Eat more healthy
  • Learn a new skill / hobby
  • Spend more time on personal wellbeing
  • Spend more time with family / friends
  • Drink less alcohol
  • Stop smoking

We want to help you succeed in this goal, which is why we have included some tips below. Simple precautions do not take much time or money, unlike many other resolutions that your friends and family have made.

Name a Designated Driver

If you are going out drinking, even going over to a friend’s home where you know you will be partaking in, make sure that there is someone who will be completely sober to drive.

Watch How Much You Drink

We expect 2017 to offer many reasons to celebrate, but our encouragement is to watch how much you drink. It is easier to do something risky, such as getting behind the wheel of a car intoxicated or entering a vehicle with another intoxicated driver.

Obey the Laws of the Road

Caution signs, laws and other prohibitions on the road are often set in place for reasons that we may not be aware of, but are in most cases, set in place for important reasons. Follow laws, such as those involving hand-held devices while driving, to help increase safety on the road.
