Breakthrough Task Force requests the
attention of all Big Bear Valley visitors as well as residents, to make a
special effort to make safety on our mountains roads, a priority as we approach
a New Year – 2017.
this time of the year, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) related accidents can be at the
highest due to the extremely dangerous occurrence of drinking alcohol and
getting behind the wheel.
Breakthrough Task Force strongly encourages individuals to celebrate safely,
never drink and drive, and plan ahead before drinking alcohol. It is important
for individuals to prepare for a safe way home and can do so by utilizing the Big Bear Designated Driver Program (BBDDP).
BBDDP celebrates the use of a designated driver when family or friends are out
enjoying the festivities of the season at local participating restaurants or
bars. The Designated Driver must identify themselves as the Designated Driver and will be given a BBDDP
wristband to wear for the night, which also prevents any confusion by servers
since they are not to drink any alcohol at all.
Designated Driver will also be provided with a perk while at the
establishment, such as free nonalcoholic refreshments or a discount on
appetizers. Once the celebrating has ended, the Designated Driver
and responsibly drive their friends and family home, without breaking any laws
and most importantly without putting any lives at risk by allowing intoxicated
drivers on the road.
rewards don’t end there! The Designated Driver
take their BBDDP wristband to participating businesses and establishments in
Big Bear Valley to receive a discount within the next days, weeks, or months.
There is no expiration date, they can use the wristband whenever it is
convenient for them. Not only are these responsible adults preventing harm to
their loved ones, but also are contributing to keeping the Mountain Communities
safe by not allowing those who drink, to drive.
