Please Celebrate the New Years Holiday Responsibly!

New Years Eve and New Years Day are two of the deadliest holidays on the roads, and the main reason is alcohol-impaired driving.  About five times as many people are killed in drunk driving car crashes on New Years Day than an average day.  The hours between 6 p.m. New Years Even and 6 a.m. New Years Day are especially treacherous.

While planning your New Years celebrations, consider taking precautions if you are going to be on the roadways.

  • If you or your party will be consuming alcohol, designate a sober driver
  • Do not allow anyone who has been drinking to get behind the wheel
  • Consider staying the night at your destination
  • If hosting a party, help arrange transportation and/or lodging ahead of time
  • If you see a drunk driver on the road, notify authorities

Celebrate the beginning of 2018 safely.  Happy New Year!
