Avoid Drinking and Driving on New Year’s Eve

The new year is just around the corner and is the final celebration of the holidays. Friends and families get together on New Year’s Eve for one last celebration.  Do not ruin the holiday season by drinking and driving after the celebration is over. Drinking and driving is never okay and can ruin much more than just your day. It can destroy the lives of your family and others out on the road.

40 percent of all crashes are alcohol related and statistics show that one person is killed due to drunk driving every 30 minutes and one person is seriously injured every other minute.

Dangers from drinking and driving include:

  • Slow response time
  • Accidents with major injuries and deaths
  • Loss of license and costly penalties and fines
  • Costly repairs and insurance rate increases
  • Jail time

Avoid these dangers by staying sober, selecting a designated driver, taking a cab or staying at home this New Year’s Eve.
