Cheers to 2018!

The year 2017 has come and almost gone but before the year ends, there will be one last hooray! For many years New Year’s Eve has been celebrated by the young and the seasoned and often times includes a bit of alcohol. Statistics have shown the amount of motor vehicle accidents increase dramatically during this time of the year due to the amount of people on the road at odd hours of the night and people driving under the influence.

If you do find yourself out and about on New Year’s Eve, make sure you follow simple safe driving tips and pay attention to your surroundings at all times. If you are driving and you see a vehicle swerving or speeding up and slowing down, stay back or pass them safely and try to get as far away as possible. Also keep in mind that there will be many young drivers out on the road celebrating the night with friends and when the music is turned up loud and everyone in the car is having fun, the driver may take their eyes off the road for just a second, but that second is all it takes to have an accident, especially at night when visibility is low. Lastly, but most importantly, always make sure to wear your seat belt just in case you are involved in a crash, it can save your life.

Every year the evening news has reports of people getting injured or sometimes even killed due to accidents that occur because of people making foolish decisions behind the wheel. Although state and local police officers will be heavily patrolling areas, they cannot catch everyone. If you are not planning on traveling or going out for a night on the town to ring in the New Year, try and stay off the roads if possible. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Unfortunately, there will always be individuals that choose to drink and get behind the wheel of a vehicle and some times that decision can have dangerous consequences.

Have fun celebrating the New Year and getting that midnight kiss! Cheers to 2018!
