What is a prom promise? It’s a simple agreement between teenagers going to the prom and their parents or school. It states: “I commit to an alcohol – and drug-free prom night because I care about my fellow students, my community and myself.”
AFA upholds the prom promise by establishing and upholding policy that prohibits underage drinking during the prom limo service. If we catch our underage passengers drinking, we confiscate the alcohol and notify the parents immediately. Depending on the situation, we reserve a right to terminate the prom limousine service. For this reason, we cordially ask you that talk to other parents and teenagers who will be going together and advise of the policy and consequences of breaking it.
Aside from the obvious legal reasons, we do not allow the underage drinking as it jeopardizes the safety of our passengers. Grown men and women, under the influence of the alcohol, have gotten into fights, broke glasses and bar, and became physically and verbally abusive to others. Even one intoxicated teenager can jeopardizes the safety of all passengers in the vehicle is he/she starts behaving irrationally and becomes abusive.
Over the years we have dealt with different kinds of parents. Parents who value their kids safety and do not allow or encourage underage drinking, and, sadly, parents who do. Parents and school official should talk to the kids about “Prom Promise”
Please do not give your kids alcohol!
It is not our place or intent to judge what you do in your own home behind closed doors, but please do not provide your kids with any kind of alcohol on their prom night. If you are of the liberal mind and disagree with current laws, then by all means provide teenagers with a lighter alcohol such as beer in the safety of their own home, feed them well and keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t get into trouble. But please do not send your kids out with any kind of alcohol.
Let’s work together to make sure the prom night is memorable for only good reasons.
