The Los Angeles Police Department Van Nuys Division posted on their blog a list of safety tips to follow this New Year's Eve. 

Here's the list from the department's blog:

•Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility as the host. 

•Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests. 

•Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests. 

•Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends. 

•Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home. 

If you are attending New Year's Eve parties and celebrations: 

•If you drink, don't drive. 
◦Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins. 
◦If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up. 
◦Or, stay where you are until you are sober. 

•Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.
