HOW TO HAVE A SAFE SPRING BREAK EXPERIENCE Each spring millions of students from high school and college embark on a pilgrimage to a vacation locale of their choice and proceed to kick up their heels and relax. For some students, the vacation is really a chance to unwind from months of study and is duly deserved. Other students use spring break as an excuse to participate in reckless behavior, including overconsumption of alcohol. Most parents are worried about what their children might do while on spring break. Statistics indicate that 80 percent of parents are worried about their kids drinking, and almost the same amount are worried about unprotected sex fueled by alcohol consumption. On average, spring breakers consume 10 drinks per day. Some resort towns are the more popular -- not to mention notorious -- for spring break revelry and frenzy. These include Daytona Beach, FL; Cancun, Mexico; Panama City, FL; South Padre Island, TX; and Sticking to the buddy system on spring break is a good way to ensure a fun and New Orleans, LA. safe experience for all. News stations often report incidents that occur during spring break festivities that have gotten out of control. In April 2010, Matt James, a football recruit for the University of Notre Dame, was killed during his senior year of high school after he fell from a hotel balcony while on a spring break vacation. Alcohol was to blame. Spring break needn’t end in a tragic story. There are safety tips every student can heed to help make their trip fun and safe. * Avoid theft.Spring break draws big crowds every year. Keep your belongings and money safe by always locking doors and windows when leaving the hotel. Try to go to the ATMmachine with friends in groups during daylight hours and always be aware of who is watching while you withdraw cash. If you feel unsafe, go to another machine. * Be cautious in the car. Be especially careful while driving. Many spring-breakers drink excessively and then get behind the wheel, making for dangerous driving. Always be on the lookout for reckless driving and steer clear of danger. If driving to your spring break location, take turns sharing time behind the wheel with others to avoid growing tired on the road. * Drink responsibly. Most spring-breakers drink to some extent while on vacation. It is OK to have fun if you are of the legal age, but pace yourself and don’t make daily intoxication your goal. Alcohol poisoning is more common than many students know. In addition, the sun can increase the effects of alcohol, so keep this in mind if you’re spending ample time on the beach. Also, remember that being drunk makes you an easier target for theft, assault and even sexual abuse.

* Swim safely. When heading to the beach, always choose a spot on the sand with a lifeguard on duty nearby. Even a very experienced swimmer can be swept up in a rip current. * Always have a buddy system. Whenever going out, be sure you do so with friends and be certain to come home with friends. You can collectively watch out for one another and make sure no trouble ensues. * Recognize not everyone is overindulging. Overindulgence might seem the norm at spring break, but not everyone is engaging in excessive or risky behavior. You never have to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable. Again, this is where the buddy system can help protect you in certain situations. * Be especially careful abroad. When traveling overseas, it’s important to realize that not all of the rules and regulations you’re used to will be the same. Some countries have very strict drug and alcohol laws, and zero tolerance for smuggling. Don’t let your spring break trip turn into a legal nightmare by doing something foolish. Also, do your homework before traveling to any foreign destination. Be aware that there are also native residents who know vacationers can be easy scam targets. Spring break has the potential to make positive memories that last a lifetime if revelers act responsibly.
