Since the public health emergency began, we’ve seen drivers making riskier decisions when they’re behind the wheel. As the year comes to a close and a new one begins, make it a point to drive safely — and drive sober — every day.
Have a Plan Whether You’re Driving, Riding or Hosting
If you’re celebrating and drinking this holiday season, always remember to plan ahead with a sober driver to take you home. If you’re the designated driver, it’s important to take the role seriously and don’t consume alcohol. Here are some more safety tips:
- Never drink and drive.
- Don’t let someone get behind the wheel if that person has been drinking.
- If you’re hosting a gathering, make sure everyone has a sober ride home.
- Always wear your seat belt. It’s your best defense against impaired drivers.
- Call 911 if you see a drunk driver.
