Some hints on how to get the keys from someone who has been drinking and intends to drive:

  • Be calm. Joke about it. Make light of it.

  • Make it clear that you're doing them a favour by taking their keys.

  • Find the keys while they are distracted and take them away. They'll probably think they've lost them and will be forced to let someone else drive.

  • If it's a close friend, speak to him or her privately and suggest they let someone else drive or take a cab or public transit.

  • If it's a good friend, partner or loved one, refuse to get in the car with them. Tell him or her you will ride with someone else, take public transportation or walk.

  • If you don't know the person well, speak to their friends and ask them to help get the keys. Even if you do know someone well, it's a good idea to enlist someone else's help if you encounter resistance.
