New Years Eve Safety Tips

If you are hosting a New Year's Eve party, following a few simple rules could prevent a tragedy:

  • Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility as the host.
  • Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests.
  • Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests.
  • Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.
  • Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home.

If you are attending New Year's Eve parties and celebrations:

  • If you drink, don't drive.
  • Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins.
  • If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up.
  • Or, stay where you are until you are sober.
  • Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.

“At least it was the speed camera and not an officer that was hit,” said Chief Doug Young speaking of the crash.

With the heavy construction on I29 and now the flood, the focus of drivers needs to be on driving. There has been an increase of accidents in construction areas.With tighter roads and uneven surfaces, the safety of construction workers and other motorists is dependent on undistracted driving.
