The Police Division is teaming up with the Nationwide Freeway Site visitors Security Administration (NHTSA) to discourage group members from driving impaired throughout vacation festivities.
“Have a good time with a Plan. When you plan to drink, plan for a sober driver to take you house. Is it your flip to be the designated driver? Take that position critically and don’t devour alcohol, not even one drink,” Police Division officers stated on social media.

Police officers ask group members to pay attention to the next:
- Keep in mind that it’s by no means okay to drink and drive. Even in case you’ve had just one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to make use of public transportation or a journey service to get house safely.
- When you see a drunk driver on the highway, name 911.
- Do you will have a good friend who’s about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make preparations to get your good friend house safely.
