Eliminating drunk driving - RASE

Bartenders and servers play a pivotal role in evaluating patrons' alcohol consumption levels and taking appropriate action when a customer has had too much to drink. Restaurants should make a real effort—this summer and beyond—to reduce drunk driving by attending RASE. This event is perfect for new, seasonal hires and experienced staff alike. Together, we can make a real impact.
