Often these attempts go awry: Torn fingers or hands as well as burn injuries up to the death sequence are the result. Also, hearing damage and eye injuries are just as typical as dangerous New Year's Eve injuries.
But it is not only self-produced bangers that harbor risks, but missiles without approval from the authorities should also be left in the supermarket.
Rules of conduct for the fireworks
On New Year's Eve, make sure that the bottle or vessel from which the rocket is fired can not fall over. A sufficiently large safety distance is indispensable for humans, animals as well as buildings or cars - it is not uncommon to have apartment fires on New Year's Eve due to misguided Böller.
Children should always be supervised and resort only under instructions on fireflies and sparklers. Duds belong to disposed of and not re-lit.

After the New Year's Eve party

Driving should only be done if you remain absolutely sober - even small amounts of alcohol will affect your ability to react, even before you realize it yourself. Add to that tiredness, bad weather, slippery roads, broken glass on the street and last but not least many drunken pedestrians.
One night stand on New Year's Eve
Some may not know how to get back to their own home. However, if you want to end New Year's Eve in a strange bed, it is best to pack condoms in order to avoid a rude awakening the next day.
Research also shows that more and more young people often have unprotected traffic. Statistics show that sexually transmitted diseases are also on the rise in the industrialized countries. The HIV infection rate is also rising year by year, and treatment is far from good enough to be carefree.
