Be Aware of These Summer Dangers

Drinking and driving usually occurs on holidays, weekends and evenings – but now that summer is here and we are near beaches, day drinking becomes another danger for those on and off the roads. College students are home for break and tourists begin to flock to the beaches. Day drinking is a common theme among beach goers – here are two serious dangers that you may encounter while day drinking in the sun.

Day drinking puts you at a higher risk of becoming dehydrated

Mixing alcohol with sun exposure will leads to a higher risk of becoming dehydrated which means sunburn, possible disorientation and lower tolerance of alcohol. Make sure when you’re day drinking to drink a glass of water after every alcoholic drink.

Operating a boat while intoxicated could be just as dangerous as drinking and driving

Heavy drinking can interfere with your balance, coordination and overall thought processes. In tragic news stories that involve boat crashes and people falling overboard and drowning, many of them have to do with alcohol consumption.

If you plan on day drinking on the beach, make sure you either have a sober ride home and/or a designated driver for your boat or jet ski. Whether its your vacation or just a day at the beach, alcohol is not to be taken lightly.  Warn your teens, college students and friends about the dangers of mixing alcohol with the sun.
