New Year’s Eve Safety Tips Las Vegas

Las Vegas is one of the premiere destinations for celebrating New Year’s Eve. With dozens of extraordinary clubs and parties featuring some of the best DJs in the world–not to mention 24/7 partying–it’s easy to understand why. The Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at ER Injury Attorneys hope that you enjoy everything Sin City has to offer on New Year’s Eve. The team urges you to be careful since the holiday can be dangerous to revelers and bystanders alike. To help you stay safe while celebrating, please follow these New Year’s Eve safety tips.

Three Essential New Year’s Eve Safety Tips

Whether you’re in a club, bar hopping, or in between venues, there are many things to keep an eye out for on New Year’s Eve. To help you stay safe while ringing in 2023, please be sure to:

Arrange Transportation Ahead of Time

Staying in one place all night is definitely not what Las Vegas is all about. There are so many sights and sounds to enjoy, and you owe it to yourself to experience as much as you can. That said, we do not recommend driving yourself around town, even if you’re sober. There will be many drunk drivers on the road, unfortunately, and finding a taxi or rideshare can be an arduous task on New Year’s Eve.

To give you and your friends some peace of mind, our team recommends the following options.

  • Dryver is a service that works similarly to rideshare services like Lyft and Uber, but instead of hiring a driver for one ride, you can hire a driver for multiple hours. Having a personal driver all night long will allow you to focus on partying.
  • SafeRideNevada offers multiple services that can increase your New Year’s Eve safety, including personal drivers, designated drivers, and car pickup. While some locals use this as an “in case of emergency” service, we recommend using it to arrange transportation beforehand.
  • The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) offers free bus rides from 6:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to 9:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Taking advantage of free bus rides will help keep you safe and allow you to save money on transportation so that you can spend more at the club.
  • On the opposite end of the spectrum, Las Vegas has a number of opulent limousine services. If you’re looking to ring in the new year safely and in style then consider getting a stretch limo for the evening.

Watch Your Step to Avoid Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are extremely common on New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas. Clubs are crowded, drinks are flowing, and service staff is overworked. This combination of factors often results in wet floors. If you can, keep an eye on your path for any wet surfaces. This can be difficult in dark bars and clubs, especially when you’re enjoying a holiday with your friends, but try your best. Taking a few seconds to scan ahead can make the difference between staying safe and suffering a broken bone.

Fireworks Safety Tips

Many people enjoy watching brilliant fireworks displays during New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas, while others enjoy setting off fireworks to entertain other people. If you fall into the latter category then be sure to follow basic fireworks safety in order to avoid a burn injury. This includes:

  • Never holding lighted fireworks in your hands
  • Never direct fireworks towards people, houses, or flammable objects
  • Use a water bucket to dispose of spent fireworks
  • Never use fireworks indoors
