PARTY Safely

Designated Drivers                    



The 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. 

At 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.

The 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).    

The 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.

The 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 will safely 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.

The rewards don’t end there! The Designated Driver can then 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.
