New Year�s Warning: Don�t 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 Year�s approaches, we bring you our annual reminder to drink responsibly, because it�s 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 nation�s roads. The NHTSA�s Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday crackdown is currently underway and runs through January 1st.

Don�t 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 NHTSA�s SaferRide mobile app, available on Google Play for Android devices and Apple�s iTunes Store for iOS devices. The SaferRide app allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend and identifies the user�s location so he or she can be picked up safe and sound.
  • Don�t 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 Year�s!
