How to get a P.A.S.S. for Prom this May

Share Article

Prom night can be a fun and memorable night for many high school students, and Comedy Driving, Inc. wants to ensure students have fun in a responsible manner. Although high school students should not be partaking in alcohol consumption, if it does happen to occur there should always be someone appointed to be the Weekend P.A.S.S. "Person Appointed to Stay Sober" or teenagers need to speak with their parents in case the situation occurs.

As a one of the leading defensive driving Texas course, Comedy Driving proactively informs its students about the danger of drinking and driving for all ages. Parents and guardians should always consider all variables to be safe and do what works best to keep their teenagers from drinking.

The first step in the P.A.S.S. program is to find a person that will agree to remain sober throughout the night. Remember, sober doesn't mean only a few drinks, it means absolutely zero drinks. Finding a person to be the P.A.S.S. should be rather simple at prom, considering there will be many people attending including friends and family members.

The next step of P.A.S.S. is "appointing," which is letting that chosen individual know what needs to be done in order to fulfill these duties. Remind them that this is a great responsibility and everyone will be trusting in them to remain 100% sober.

The third step, "stay" means that the chosen individual must not only stay sober throughout the remainder of the night, but must also stay available in case they are needed. This can be done by either staying at the event or staying readily available close by in order to assist the others at a moment's notice.

The last step is to remain "SOBER". This is something expected from all high school students to do; always consider the legal drinking age is 21 years old and it is important to focus on teaching them safety techniques as well. Again, sober means no drinks at all; Not one alcoholic drink, not half a drink, not staring longingly at a long island iced tea the whole night; no alcohol whatsoever! This individual is the non-alcoholic drinker of the night in order to ensure their driving skills remain completely uninhibited.

Comedy Driving, a Texas defensive driving course, would also like to remind everyone that states promote “0” tolerance for underage drinking and parents and guardians should consider speaking with their young adults about consequences for underage drinking . Additionally, inform all youths about what needs to be done in case any child has had alcohol on prom night or any other night to ensure their safe arrival.
