New Yearís Warning: Donít Drink and Drive

Tis the season to drive sober fa la la la la, la la la la

Covid-19 has limited holiday gatherings, but there will still be office parties, holiday cocktails with friends and perhaps even spiked eggnog at family festivities. As New Yearís approaches, we bring you our annual reminder to drink responsibly, because itís never okay to drink and drive.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign

Expect stepped-up police enforcement during one of the most dangerous times of the year on the nationís roads. The NHTSAís Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday crackdown is currently underway and runs through January 1st.

Donít become a statistic and keep the road safe for yourself and others by taking these steps instead of getting behind the wheel:

  • Plan ahead and designate a sober driver before the festivities begin.
  • Call a cab or use a ride service like Uber or Lyft to get home.
  • Download NHTSAís SaferRide mobile app, available on Google Play for Android devices and Appleís iTunes Store for iOS devices. The SaferRide app allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend and identifies the userís location so he or she can be picked up safe and sound.
  • Donít let your friends drive impaired.

If you are hosting the holiday party, remind your guests to designate a driver. Offer non-alcoholic beverages. Make sure all your guests leave with a sober driver.

Everyone at the Car Pro urges drivers not to drink and get behind the wheel over the holiday season or any other day of the year.

Have a safe and Happy New Yearís!
