New Year’s celebrations are exciting & fun, but it is important to stay safe. These actions can help save your life or someone else’s!

Drive Safe

Responsibility – It is estimated that 10,000 lives are claimed each year from drunk driving crashes.

  • If you will be drinking, plan on not driving. Plan an UBER/LYFT or find a designated driver ahead of time. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
  • If someone you know has been drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. Take their keys and arrange a sober ride home.

See Something, Say Something
